I bought these to replace OEM Michelin tires, and was very satisfied with my choice. They were in every facet equal or better than the Michelins. I swear these were around $186/ea each a couple of years ago, happy to see them still available for $106/ea. Car has 90K on it now, so I think they have at least 40K on them, and finasly time to replace them. treadwear is pretty even, so no damage from improper alignment or inflation. I enjoy the quietness and performance.
