Had these for a few years now and overall I have to say they are a good tire for the price I paid, so definitely a value. The dry performance is very good and predictable with good handling response due to the stiff side walls even with a 55 aspect ratio. In the wet, the performance does fall off a fair bit with noticeably less grip when cornering in comparison to dry. I definitely don't feel as confident taking the same corner in the wet as in the dry and there's a little bit of a "floaty" feeling in the steering in the wet. I also have a rear wheel drive car and on several occasions had the back end step out in the rain when making a simple left hand turn starting from a dead stop at an intersection. With that all said, it's overall decent performance in the wet. Although these are sold as an "ALL SEASON" tire... they are not! These are hazardous in the snow and I would dare say you are literally taking your life in your own hands if you drive in anything remotely snowy or icy, even a little bit of slush is problematic. Granted I'm in Vancouver BC so we don't get much snow in the winter, but what little we do get, this tire is not able to handle it. Treadwear I would say is average. I foresee I won't get much more than 50K maybe 55K on these. Would I buy these again?.... sadly I would say no only for the simple fact that it's almost un-driveable in the snow.
