At the moment, this is an excellent tire for my car. I only have about 5500 miles on them so I do not show signs of wear yet. Keep the car aligned,
tires properly inflated and rotate the tires and they should last a long time. Excellent traction in dry and very good in wet. Will not use in cold or snow weather.I have dedicated snow tires for that purpose. Great handling and comfortable ride as well. Noise is minimal if any at this point but I don't expect any as time goes on. As with any tire, if you beat the crap out of them, even the best won't last long!
