I needed new tires after only 34,000 miles on OEM. Reviewed all available information on the tires and am very pleased with this tire. They wear very well with over 54,000 miles on them. While most driving is highway, I make frequent short trips around town and into both New York and Philadelphia with significant stop and go traffic. These tires handle the road very well even in rain and light snow. I occasionally have some difficulty with hills in deeper snow (5 to 6 inches or greater) but have yet to get stuck anywhere. Keep the tires inflated to manufacturer's specifications and on the Altima I get 34 highway (on long runs of >100 miles) and average 28 to 29 highway/city. Great tire for the money on the Altima. With two teenage drivers in the house I wanted a safe and reliable tire and this meets the criteria.
