These tires have no treadwear warranty and seem to be designed to hold up only long enough to avoid claims for uniformity and workmanship.Within ten thousand miles they begin to resemble skates.I have never had tires before that actually cause severe understeer.The only possible use I can see for these tires would be for a rear wheel drivehigh powered car with a soft and loose suspension.

I give this tire a 10 for treadwear,but I replaced them with over 5/32 tread remaining.Initially they are a decent O.E. tire. They hydroplane badly at first,but otherwise perform adequately.However they quickly deteriorate in every ther way,except for hydroplaning.When I finally gave up on them they were unresponsive to steering input ,rough riding,and unbarebly noisy. They did wear evenly,but I think they were beating the heck out of my suspension. I had real hope for these tires at first,but they turned out to be the worst Goodyears I have ever owned.
