Excellent tire! I needed a performance tire for a good price and all season capabilities and could not have made a better choice. Dey traction is superb; wet traction is confidence-inspiring and treadwear is excellent. I made the mistake of not rotating them properly (I.e. at all) and the fronts wore down to 4/32nds after 23k, but that's my fault because the rears are still going strong and show signs of lasting another 20k easy. Road noise is moderate to low, but not intrusive or annoying; it'll never get in the way of normal conversation. They take corners like a slot car, have a W speed rating, and are as comfy as anything I've experienced in 25 years of driving! I have ben buying from the TireRack for more than ten years and have never been disappointedi the wealth of information available is first class and makes buying a breze.
