Follow-Up Review: 30,000 miles on tires
November 13, 2012
The tires are about on the wear bars all around after 30,000 miles. They wear very evenly and last 3 times as long as other performance tires I've had. My last 2 sets were pushed far beyond the wear bars and I could only manage 15,000 miles of highway driving. The handling is not nearly as good as new, but that's expected from any tire. The response and predictability is still 100%, making these feel safe enough to keep driving on dry roads, but probably not safe for wet. You cannot beat the value of this cheap tire.

These tires wear well for a 280 tread-wear, and are extremely quiet. Excellent performance tire for the price.
