Follow-Up Review: 30,000 miles on tires
November 30, 2012
30K miles and four years with the current tires. Every 5-10K I get a tire rotation and balance check. No problems and even wear. Based on my wear I should get at lest 10 more until I hit the tire bars. These tire have been good for me. Can only speak about wet and dry traction as there is no snow in Southern California. I would have to admit this is a good product.
Initial Review: 12,000 miles on tires
May 16, 2011

The tire was OE when purchased. I drive in mostly an arid climate in Southern California, so I cannot comment on the tire's snow capabilities. However, it has been an excellent tire on both dry and wet pavements. Further, it is comfortable and quiet. Around here the roads are horrible and I feel that the tire takes the beating well. It is certainly a tire I would buy again when the time comes, and based on my ware, it will be a while. They look the same way since purchased. Frankly, I am surprised by all the negative feedback this tire has received.
