Bought 4 of these 11 Jan 2014 for a 2008 Ford Fusion, It has now been a year and and the tires still look new. The tires seem to be good tires and overall we are satisfied with the performance however, we will NEVER purchase these again.
These tires are SO NOISEY!! If there was a rating of "0" for "Noise, that is what it would be.
Its not as noisey in the summer months because the streets are hot so the tire gets soft and is not as loud however, its still lough enough to hear them over the radio.
The winter months is a different story. Its like I'm riding in a large 4x4 with a lift kit, huge tires and we could use ear plugs. I'm sure the noise factor would go off the scale if messured.
DO NOT purchase these!!
Over all a very good tire.They are great in dry conditions and excellent in hard cornering. Normal driving on wet roads is fine. However, when driving aggressive on wet roads they break traction a bit more than I think they should. My car is a FWD with about 215 HP. In snow they seems fine, this is the only car I have owned, I normally have SUVs, so my view on snow driving is a bit skewed. Treadware seems great, I have around 30k on them and they are still okay.
