The tires came with my civic when I bought it used, over 11,000 miles ago. They are noisy, ride hard, and are generally defeaning to drive on. I have to drive with the windows down and headphones in in order to try to block out the noise. My mechanic told me that I needed to purchase all new tires because I had the WORST TIRES ON THE ROAD. DO NOT purchase these.
I've chosen these tires after much research and glad that i chose the Cooper brand.These are some of the best tires I've ever had, I've put on just over 30k on these tires and am confident I can get an easy 100k on them. These are all season tires mind you, they're excellent in the rain, snow, (I've been caught in a blizzard traveling from NYC to Cleveland) they handle reasonably well in the dry at a fast pace, but for the most part I use my car to drive from point A to B. I can not understand some of the negative reviews I've read on occasion of these particular tires, some of the reviews were just blatant stupidity and had nothing to do with the tires. All in all these tires are very good against the best fro m Michelin or Bridgestone. The Bridgestone Potenzas that came stock on the car were ok but wore horribly.
