Purchased these tires 2 years ago. With only 52,000km on the tires now,the tread depth is already 4/32 and wearing fast (2/32 they're trash and Cooper won't warranty them, this is why i am claiming them now). It will not make it to the claimed 96,000km tread warranty. Two of the tires are starting to have crack rings along the sidewall. The tires are also getting very loud with road noise since the tread is almost done. Wet weather driving being from the wet west coast the traction isn't the greatest and can easily break traction. The odd occasional snow they perform miserably and claw to get any sort of traction. (Being from a winter province before i know what real snow is).
There was so much hype behind these tires, but are failing miserably. These were not my first choice. I was going to go with Continental pro contact but were sold out. I will be going to them now after these tires wore out so fast.
I work at a garage and ALWAYS rotated every oil change (5,000km) and alignment was done/checked when needed.
I had these tires on my vehicle for approximately three weeks. They have a tremendous amount of vibration and road noise. Had them rebalanced with no effect. They seem to be pretty quiet, but the constant vibration and rumble the company's tires was unbearable. I utilized their 45 Day Test Dr. And returned the tires. I replace them with the tried and true Michelin primacy MXV4. They were $45 more per tire, but well worth it.
Excellent tire Ive always been a fan of Michelin and Pirelli tires however after trying these I think they superior to Michelin in comfort noise traction, however fall sort of handing and dry traction when compared to Pirelli PZero. I however would like more milage out of them. Im at 40,000km and thinking its soon for a change. Most defintely to the same tire.
Great tire new. Excellent handling in all snow and especially rainy conditions. BIG issue arose around 20,000 kms. Tires have become increasingly UNBEARABLY loud and have been rotated/inflated properly since they were installed. Now have 30,000 kms on the tires. This is really too bad as they initially did exactly what they set out to do. The noise issue would lead me to not purchase this brand again any time in the near future. Vredestein need to address this issue.
Don't know whatever others are griping about. As for the vette driver, I've driven vettes for 30 years and never had trouble with Goodyears starting with Eagle GT's in 1980. Got this set though for my wife's Sonata when the OEM Hankook's couldn't make it up a slight hill in the snow (they were not the 727's which I'm told are much better). These Assurance Triple Treads are great in the snow. They sometimes slip a little in wet from a dead stop but that is likely a combination of my wife's driving methods and the Hyundai electronic throttle which was never smooth off idle. As for wear, my son had them a Regal we purchased when it had 50k on it. I though they looked pretty worn then and expected we'd have to replace them in 20k or so. We didn't end up replacing them until the car was at 110k. So that was more than 60k. And much of that was in NE NY along the St. Lawrence River where he went to college. So lots of snow to fight with.
It's a good tire.
