Spent Christmas with my in-laws in Maryland and had quite a few run-ins with old man winter. All snow storms dropped 3-6 inches of snow. I was able to drive on the unplowed, wet snow very easily. AWD didn't have to kick in very often too. Had some passengers with me and they couldn't believe how easily I was driving. I was very impressed myself. Will still get a dedicated winter set when we move back north.<br><br>Ride is still comfortable and tires still have great depth. Should easily get to 50k at this rate. Noise is up slightly. I had a bad humming from the rear; rotated them in my driveway (no balance this time) and noise moved to both fronts. I think it is due to slight wear on the inside of the tires. I hope I can wear it down and noise will stop. Tires don't pull or anything despite wear. Not sure if a balance would do anything at the moment.<br><br>My love for Dunlops keep growing! Thank you! <br><br>And yes, the tires are made here in the USA! Says so right on the sidewall!f
Initial Review: 20,000 miles on tires
September 13, 2012

I have been a Goodyear/Dunlop tire fan for quite a long time and I have had great luck with all of them, most especially these! I purchased these tires for my wife's Saturn and absolutely fell in love with them. They replaced a set of Kumho Solus KH16 which wore out really quickly and were really noisy.

These Dunlops are tremendously quiet, quite responsive, and have handled everything that was thrown at them very well (including snow, but are obviously not as good as a dedicated set of snow tires). When we were living in Pennsylvania for a few years, they got us through the winter with no issues whatsoever (6-12+ inches of snow at one point, although they were brand new). I did not feel the need for a dedicated winter set like on my other car.

No problems with hyrdoplaning or anything this these tires, although AWD really helps out with this too. After 20k miles or so, they are wearing very well with about 3/4 tread left. I expect to get 40-50K out of them. For someone looking for a great set of affordable tires, definitely consider these.
