I rated low on tread wear but the real problem is they are defective. I just had my third one go in and they found a hole in the sidewall. My DOT does not match the recall so I just have to eat it and buy a new tire each time. I am going to eat the money I've spent and replace all four tires with the Bridgestone Duelers that I have never had a problem with. I have only had these tires for one year and I'm afraid to drive on the highway for fear I'm going to have a blow out.
