I bought these to replace the original Goodyear tires that came on the car. I am satisfied with them overall. There is a very slight whine at highway speeds but it is barely noticeable and I have to listen closely to even hear it. Other than that, they are very quiet riding tires and have not gotten any noisier after 40,000 miles. Tread wear is good and they stay in balance. They ride and handle very well during my normal driving on dry roads. I drive in snow occasionally in winter and the traction in snow and slush is decent considering that the Corolla is a pretty light car.

The only real complaint I have with them is that they have poor traction on wet pavement. They will break loose during moderate to heavy braking and cornering. Part of the reason this is so noticeable is that they handle so well on dry roads that it makes the grip on wet roads seem much worse than I would expect.

Overall a good tire and, even considering the wet road traction issue, I would probably buy them again.
