Cheaper tire in a low profile design. But because I live in a four seasons area, I need some snow traction. This tire is good enough, decent cornering not a lot of noise. But ride quality suffered and yet does any 45 ratio tire do well with midwest pot holes? I think not.
I've kept them rotated ever 5000 and like other low pro's you run the risk of vibrations at highway speeds after rotation. This is a decent tire for around $100 a piece from Wal-mart. For a econobox Cruze that's good.
I'm not sure what everyone is saying about road noise but I have no issues with that on my cruze. Only thing I have noticed is the soft sidewall but that is why it's called fuel max. People please research tire specs so you know what you are looking for the sales people are just after cash
The Goodyear fuel max is a AAA++ product for what it's designed to do
So many bad comment BUT I love those tire, very good on ice, very good on snow (if you have a smooth accelaration and braking habit), the quietest tire on the market. If you drive according to condition you will love those tire no problem. the price on those tire are pretty expensive but worth every cent. I drive 140 km per day. so far this years we had everything that mother nature produce , never got stuck. ICE GRIP IS the top on my list, SNOW traction second. would buy those tire again
