Coming off a cheap pair of dealership tires that were put on my Altima 3.5SE MT, obviously these are night and day better. However, I will tell you that these tires have completely changed the driving characteristics of my vehicle. I have been driving sport sedans for the last decade, and have purchased many tires. The best set of tires I've ever owned were the Good Year Assurance Triple Treds on my 2007 VW Passat. Those are great in all conditions. I live in New England where we run the full gamut of weather patterns (Snow, Ice, Dry, Wet) throughout the year. However, they don't make an 18 tire in this size. I can tell you that you will be very satisfied with cornering and overall handling of this tire. It is also very quiet even at 100+mph. W/ 270hp coupled to a 6-speed FWD car as light as the altima, it was very hard to hook the tires when accelerating. With the Kumhos on, I can actually drive my car the way it was meant to be driven.
