These tires are amazing. I got them with my car when I bought it and I love the handling they have when I am racing down the back roads. Where I live we get rain every day and I these tires are able to handle inches of rain. I would recommend these tires to anyone looking for a great tire to have some fun in.

Although these tires were a big improvement in terms of grip, especially in the wet and snow, over the stock Continentals I have had some major issues with wear and noise. These tires have made very strange and loud humming noises since they were new . After my 1st rotation i noticed that there were large flat spots and very uneven wear from the pair that were on the front, despite the fact that I had the alignment done as well as being balanced when installed. Once I rotated them I had them re-balanced, but with no improvement. They make such loud noise at 20mph and from 50-70mph that i am seriously considering replacing them, even though they have plenty of tread left. Very disappointed in the durability of these tires given that they drive pretty well

Tire have 10,000 miles on them. Purchased in August 2012. Come January 2013 I'm being told I'm going to need new tires soon that they are near the tread replacement line. Horrible in wet conditions. Horrible on even a little snow. Good Year should call themselves good for 3 months. Not happy. Will not buy Good Year again.
