These tires were orignal equipment. Maybe I was just phenomonally lucky but after 84,000 miles the tread deapt is still at 3/32. I drive a mix of city and highway and enjoy agressive cornering. I have tried to get the tires to chirp while cornering and it takes about 3 times the posted speed limit. On concrete the tires generate noise, on pavement very quiet. I drive highway speeds of 75-80 MPH with no issues. The tires have never hydroplaned but wet traction is just average. They are definitely not good in snow which is a bit of a problem. While overall I have been happy with the performance of this tire I am repacing these tires with the Eagle sport A/S that is rated better all the way around.
These tires are just all around lousy. We do live in a a curvy, mountainous region and from day one we noticed that these tires do not handle on the road very well when wet. I never tired snowy/icy conditions because of how poorly they handled in the rain. We had these placed on our car in November 2011. By June 2012, our dealer said alignment seemed off and the tires were wearing really fast. We aligned the car and rotated the tires. I took the car back in to the dealer in October because the alignment was off again... and again rotated the tires. Now, it is February and our car will not pass state inspection because the tires are too worn and we have to replace them. Also, these tires do NOT hold pressure well. We were constantly having to stop in at the gas station and adjust the pressure. I am just annoyed overall with these tires, barely lasting a year, especially considering the price.
