I bought this tire to replace the Good Year Assurance Triple Tread tires that had finally worn out. I try to be diverse when I buy thing by trying new things and I do not regret this purchase. I do not think these tires are as good as the outgoing tires I had as they just do not respond as well to my rather spirited driving style like the last set but the tread wear is noticeably tougher. I have yet to drive the tires in the snow as my car is being cared for by family while I am away most of the time but they tell me it behaves well in snow. The wet traction is superb as advertised although the ride comfort is not as good as the last set, not that it is horrible, just not as soft. Overall, these tires are a remarkable value and have my recommendation. I look forward to my next set of tires in another two years or so.
