I bought these tires on sale for $600 in novemeber, and since then, I've been very confident with them. Waterloo, ontario has some very vicious winters, particularly this one. Handles great, very quiet and smooth on the highway, and in the city. I do about 50/50 city/hwy. Fuel economy isn't the greatest, but thats usually due to the cold temperatures and the nature of winter. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone.
