I replaced a set of Michelan's on my Murano in July, 2014, with a set of Hankook Ventus AS tires. Within a month I drove the car to Florida from Virginia. By the time I returned, I had developed fairly significant road noise. Now, six months later, the noise is unbelievable. I had a Jeep Wrangler with oversized tires that didn't make as much noise. I will never own another set of Hankook tires again. Do yourself a favor if you have a Murano with the odd tire size..., spend the extra and get Michelans!
Have had these on my Murano now for 18 months and 15k miles and I have to say they perform flawlessly. I live jus outside of Fairbanks, AK and we get plenty of snow & ice here and I haven't even felt the need to but studded or stud less (Blizzacks) like a lot of ppl do up here. I also have lived in a place that gets winter most of my 39yrs so I feel comfortable/confident driving in it. Will definitely recommend these for midsize SUV's.
No regrets on these tires, I had the choice of the Blizz or Toyo Observe GSi-5
I opted for these, simply because I wanted to know what the hype was all about.
So far these are great, drive comfortably and extremely quiet,
Very satisfied so far, only concern is that I heard these don't have a long thread life.
