These tires are great in the summer, but in the winter not so good. Slipping all over the place with just a little bit of snow on the ground. Pressing the brakes and the cars skids forever
Initial Review: 8,000 miles on tires

I got this tires back in the fall and have driven little over 8,000 miles on them. 60/40 highway/city driving. Right away I noticed these tires grip the road incredibly well. Of course a new tire is going to be better than your old tire with no tread left. But I think because these tires are brand new from Firestone the rubber was very soft, which gives it the great grip on the road. I would almost categorize these as summer tires, but they did perform well this past crazy winter in Chicago.
There is one HUGE negative about these tires though, my MPG has gone WAY down. I mean by 5mpg down! That is a lot. Everything else about these tires are great, but because of the mpg loss I would not buy again and would not recommend these unless you don't care about money at the pump.
