I bought four new tires at the end of June, 2015 and just replaced two of them 12/1/15. Unsure if these tires are going to be a good choice after all. Previously bought Goodyear stock tires which didn't have the handling these do, but lasted two years without a flat.
2006 VW Passat VR6, 235/45/17 -- Dissappointed with these tires. The OEM set lasted barely 42k miles, and I pushed it half a year even going that long. I really liked the performance, low noise and the looks, too, so I decided to buy a replacement set. Everything was fine again, but dang, they wear out too fast (36k mi 2nd set) -- at least it feels that way after paying $220 per tire back in 2011. No snow in Sacramento so I can't comment on that. If these were $120-150 I'd probably buy them a third time, but now looking for something with longer tread life.
