Follow-Up Review: 31,000 miles on tires
January 29, 2013
I've had these tires for over 2 yrs and 31, 000 miles. For the price they are a good choice if you are not aggressive and rotate them on a regular basis. They have been fairly quiet, (better than OEM Michelins) and responsive. In Michigan snow they are very poor and they have pulled in deep water puddles. Thread wear has been good so far. Would consider them again unless better tire is available at similiar price.
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires

I've had these about a month. Purchased them as a less expensive replacement for the OE Michelins at about 70,000, based on reviews and Tire Rack testing of them. They are the best choice for the money. Half the price of the OE tires. They are quieter and more responsive. Traction except for snow is very good and I expect to get good mileage from them. They do seem stiff in winter until warmed up like another reviewer has mentioned. A great value for the money.
