Follow-Up Review: 71,000 miles on tires
December 15, 2013
I thank TireRack for these reviews. We purchased these tires for our car based on the TireRack reviews.My family and I are obsessive with car maintenance, taking each of our cars in for routine tire rotation/balance/alignment every 7500 miles. We purchase a lifetime alignment package for each car and lifetime rotation/balance every time we buy tires.<br><br>We took in our car this weekend for a routine rotation/balance/alignment check. The dealership called and said that they would not rotate the tires anymore; the tires are too worn out. My wife and I were surprised, because the ride and handling were still good. The shop then reminded us that the tires already had 71000 miles on them, which is well over the 50000 mile service life for the tire. We double-checked our records, and they were right. The shop tells us that our cars are proof that those who take care of their tires can get a lot more use than predicted. We shall probably get these tires again, or maybe yet another tire well reviewed in the TireRack website.<br><br>Thank you TireRack contributors for the recommendations.
Initial Review: 30,000 miles on tires
December 04, 2011

We purchased this set of tires based upon the TireRack reviews from our local Firestone dealer. We have been very happy with the choice. The tires handle well, and the raised white outside lettering look aggressive, but not conservatively so, on the family SUV hauler. The handling has been very good, and the tires still look and feel as if they have not worn at all, even though the tires have more than 30000 miles on them. We would recommend these tires outright.
