Purchased these a year and a half ago replacing the gawd-awful Turanza EL500's which the car came with originally. These are the best tires I've had in 40 years of driving, got a large bolt caught in one this week and tire was replaced with no issues under warranty. Super quiet and super gripping in all weather although a tire chirp from a stoplight may sometimes be heard under normal acceleration, even a step up from the wonderful Michelin Harmonys I had on my Fords. AAAA++++! Pricey but worth every cent.
