purchased these due to the awesome reviews, surveys and prices, especially at these particular size. Its been about a 1 3/4 years and 15000, overall, an excellent set tiress. i can rotated them at set intervals and i still have more than half of my treads left, tire wear is awesome. Performance of these tires is/was excellent in wet and dry driving condition(drive with absolute confidence). i can safely say that for upper midwest(wisconsin) winter conditions(light snow, heavy snow, lake effect, ice,slush) these tires aren't so good, maybe its just that my vehicle is a rwd. from dead stop and up to speed/ from speed to complete stop not very much traction at least for me anyways. At least they are very predictable in characteristics. If you are located in an area with light snow or an occasional snow fall, i would totaly recommend these tire, well worth the money. But if you have a rwd vehicle dont plan to get very much traction from these in rough winter conditions. overall i'd say i would buy these again...
