I've had one pair of these on the front of my car (2004 Saab 9-3 convertible) for 22,000 miles. I love them! This is the third set of front tires I've had since buying the car (80,000 miles ago). The others did not maintain the grip these do, particularly in wet weather on round-a-bouts, as well as in any downpour conditions. I only had one snow experience with them shortly after getting them. The traction seemed good.
Today I had the fronts moved to the back and a second pair put on the front, so I now have a full set on my car. I thought the older pair looked more worn than expected for a 65,000 mile tire with 22,000 miles, but again, they've been on the front and I'm not exactly babying them. I'm sure they will last longer on the back, as have others.
Overall, I love this tire! The price isn't any different than I'd pay for other reasonable tires.
I also purchased a pair for my son, and have recommended to others.
