A good riding and handling tire, but I have seen a sharp drop in my gas mileage since buying these tires. Went from 40+ down to barely maintaining 34 MPG. Same driving habits, same routes, just can't get the MPG up to where I am used to being. 2014 Forte with 43,000 miles.
I have been driving in New England winters for 40 years. These OE tires are without a doubt the worst tire I have ever used in winter conditions. Even tiny amounts of snow or slush make the vehicle feel skittish, unstable, and difficult to stop. Truly terrifying tires in winter.
An incredible tire in slush and snow . hard braking excellent on dry pavement , and traction while braking on slush , snow and ice , excellent . Acceleration in such weather conditions , excellent . i've owned a lot of cars and spent my share on tires , and this is , by far , the best all season tire i've ever had by a large margin . The fact that they can build a tire like this without trading off the ride quality and quietness of the tire is a feat in itself . I havent had these tires long enough to rate the treadwear . i bought them mid fall , and now have had three weeks of winter weather . Snow , ice , and slush . im a car guy . i nit pick evrything right down to the tires . if i was not satisfied with this tire , i would tear them apart in my review . im 45 years old , and drive for a living as a courier . i need confidence on crappy roads and inclimate weather and these tires deliver . This is a no brainer . Dont cheap out on tires when it comes to driving your vehicle .
