Been about 30 years since I have had to get snow tires. For the price and performance, I am impressed. Only problem to date, and not really a problem, is getting reacquainted with road noise. If removed in a timely manner wear should not be an issue unless you like spending money. As I am located in western New York, I will have at least 5 more month's to adjust to the noise. As former Goodyear employee it is good to finally see a quality product.
