I'm surprised by the negative reports on this tire. I am delighted with the tire. I have 77,000 miles on the original tires on my 2010 Buick Enclave and am shopping to replace them as they are worn out. I have not had an alignment done since I bought the car new three years ago. I'm overjoyed with the 77,000 miles of tire life on this high center of gravity Buick crossover. The tires have worn evenly, have always been quiet and comfortable. I'm going to replace with same tire unless my tire guy (I'm in the auto parts distribution business so I have several trusted experts in automotive) is adament about changing me into something else. And even then, I may overrule him.
