First and last time to buy Nitto's. Initially I was really excited to give these tires a try. Over time, I became really disappointed. Tires handled great in dry weather. Easily the worst tire I've had driving in the rain and snow. Treadwear degradation overall was horrible. A great tire for about the first 20K or 25k. After that, performance significantly degrades. My advice, there are better tires within this price range.
Yes, I failed to listen to the reviews and thought that it was some angry customer. Now I am an angry customer. I had these tires for 2 years and put 30,000 miles on them and now they need to be replaced. I thought they might fall under the warranty; however, the warranty sucks and they don't. Even if they did, the company will gladly reduce the amount of cost for purchase of new tires. Sorry, I will never buy anything from Yokohama again so you can stick your warranty where the sun doesn't shine!!

Made my car feel like new again. This tire out performs 50% higher price tires in handling, ride comfort and stopping efficiency. I bought these at Town Fair Tire with a 30 day trial. I will not be returning them, as they exceed all of my expectations and were not harsh riding like Yokohama or BFG.
