I dont know what or why all of you are knocking this style of tire down for a bad rating. I went through 2 sets of sr a's and love them. I put over 60,000 miles on them. People there is something you have to understand and that is keeping your tires maintained like rotations, tire pressure, balance and keeping your front end aligned. You can have the best tires in the world not perform well do to abuse and not maintaining them. They are a well built tire and perform excellent in all road conditions. It all depends on your driving habits, you may not be as good of a driver as you think and dont know how to drive in hazardous conditions. Good year stands behind their product and has an excellent warranty. I recommend this tire to anyone and well worth the money. Do not listen to the other bad ratings as people dont know what they are talking about. Just remember not all tires are made perfect and you may run across a defective one here in there like anything else man creates.
