I bought these tires for my VW golf on the recommendation of my repair shop & a reputable tire store. These are the worst tires I've ever had! They were noisy from the beginning, sounding like tires on our trucks. I've had them for 1 1/2 years & 15,000 miles & they are worn out. I have been very prompt on getting alignments, rotation & balances. I am due a state inspection in 2 months & am going to have to fork out more $$ for tires. I was expecting at least 35,000 - 40,000 miles out of these. Will never buy & never recommend.
