Was not impressed with this tire. Tire was very noisy and the car did not feel secure. Stopping and starting seemed difficult. This is a very noisy tire and after one season of driving these had to go.
Good tire except for the NOISE! They were fine up until 10K or so, when I though the car's wheel bearings were going. The noise wasn't from the bearings...it was from the tires! To confirm, I swapped to a set of old snows on steel rims... what a difference as my old Michelin snows (6 winters' use) were silent compared to the G019's. I put the G019's back on, rotating them in the process, and the noise just kept getting worse as the kilometres built up. Now at 20K, I can't stand it! It sounds like I've got big lug truck tires on it with studs! It's absolutely deafening at highway speeds. Never again!
