Follow-Up Review: 40,000 miles on tires
January 27, 2013
So I have now driven 40,000 miles on these tires. Rotating every 5,000 miles and I keep the air pressure at proper levels. Tire wear is good. The tires are getting close to the indicators and I am starting to notice a slight bit higher noise on the highway. Hydroplaning is evident now that the tire has less tread. Dry conditions are still awesome. Wet conditions are still really good but a bit of caution is used the more miles we log on these tires. Have not had snow on the roadways but in the parking lot the tire still seemed to have decent traction. I am very pleased with this set of tires and I am going to purchase another of the same set when I need to replace this set. All around this is a very good tire, good wear, good traction in any condition and noise levels are decent after 40,000 miles. Just returned after 4200 mile trip and I they performed very well and predictable in sub zero temps, rain, and some snow.
Initial Review: 25,000 miles on tires

I am still very impressed with the tire wear and performance that these tires are providing. With 25000 miles on the tires the tread still looks new! I will definately purchase another set of these when needed! Thanks for such a great tire. Really wish you would send me a hat also! I have given such a strong review because I have not found a single complaint
