Initial Review: 20,000 miles on tires

These tires are a great family car tire. They are very quiet and have a cushioned ride but still handle great for a family car. Handling is very predictable and they loose grip gradually when pushed hard into a corner. Dry traction is excellent and wet traction is very good. Snow/slush/ice traction is good and is average or slightly below average for an all season tire. Traction on dirt and gravel roads is also average for an all season tire. I have about 20,000 miles on them so far and they are wearing great. I have these on a Camry that I drive for work and I'm very happy with them.
