Follow-Up Review: 45,000 miles on tires

I think this is the best tire Firestone offers in its complete line up of tires. It certainly has worked well for my Ford Escape and we are very hard on our tires. We never get this kind of mileage out of our tires, so we are very pleased. You will not have any problem with snow or wet weather.
Initial Review: 13,000 miles on tires
June 20, 2010

I bought this tire to replace the OEM Generals which rotted out after 6 years. I cannot say enough positive things about this tire. They hold the road really well in dry and wet weather. They are quiet and smooth riding. This past winter, we had over 52 inches of snow within a week. Once the roads were somewhat plowed down to about 6 inches, I ventured out and never once did I get stuck or lost traction. My front wheel drive Escape drove like a 4X4. These tires hold air really well and after 13,000 miles of driving, still look new without much wear. If you own a Ford Escape, you cannot go wrong with this tire. I know I will easily get 50,000 miles out of them.
