So far these are great tires. No detectible wear with just over 3000 miles thus far. They are very quiet running tires. The wind resistance is far louder that the tires. They only time I notice any noise from them is when encountering bumps and groves in the road surface at highway speeds. The impacts are absorbed well though, and the ride maintains a fluid smooth feel. They are responsive and have a quick and direct connection with the steering wheel. I can drive as aggressively in the wet as I can in the dry. I haven't come up against any major puddling yet but the few small puddles that I have crossed didn't require me to slow down and I experienced no hydroplaning. I can usually manage 15 to 20 mph faster than the maximum safe speed limit around sharp corners and entrance/exit ramps without tire squeal. I have only encountered small amounts of snow, about an inch, and these tires handled it better than any I have had in 25 years of driving. They didn't slide or spin and I drove like it was warm and dry. They are wider and look more aggressive, side wall and tread pattern, than the pictures indicate. If these make it to 60,000 miles as the warranty indicates then I have found the tire that I will buy again and again.
