This is my wife's car. The original tires, Bridgestone Turanzas were terrible in wet/snow conditions so I bought these to give my wife better traction, particularly in snow. The tires have delivered from a traction standpoint, however, I cannot seem to cure a consistent pull to one side. When I rotated tires front to back, the pull went away, then when I rotated a second time back to front, the pull returned. I have had the alignment checked several time, I probably just have bad tire. I notice now that the right front tire is cupping despite the fact that I have been meticulous with air pressure, alignments, and rotation. The bottom line, the traction is good but I question the overall quality of this tire. When I replace, I will go to Bridgestone Pole Position as I have them on my other car and they are perfect.
