Updating my review for this tire at 20K. Still on OEM and I'm past the 50% in tread-life. I don't think I can push these tires beyond 30K safely. I don't know how some people here gets >50K on these tires. Since the G37 has pretty even weight distribution, the tread-wear is fairly even front vs back. However, since I do more right hand turns (like freeway ramps), I'm seeing my driver-side front-left tire with more abused than normal. This is not a bad tire per-se, but I don't think it fits the premium nature of the G. It's not sporty, nor is it super comfy. I'm already leaning toward something else when it's time to change.

Got these OEM tires on my new 2010 G37 Sedan Journey with standard 17 225/55R17 wheels/tire package. Currently @ 4K. These tires are okay. Dry performance is pretty good, but I'm still wondering how this compares to the awful OEM Michelin HX MXM4 on my previous car. The G37 is a pretty solid car, but I feel like the ride comfort on these tires isn't much better than the Michelin. True, not an apple-to-apple comparison. In the rain, I feel like RS-A is pretty decent, especially with all the tread I currently have so far. But every once in a while, the car squirms a little and that gives me an uneasy feeling. Don't know if it is due to the tires or not. Treadwear is excellent and I expect this set to last 40K miles. Will update every once in a while.
