The Toyo SPECTRUM is a combination of Toyo's breakthrough Supercomputer technology and some plain old fashioned engineering diligence which produced a seriously affordable quality all-season radial
Affordable: You could spend some serious money on another tire that does a lot less. The beauty of the Toyo SPECTRUM is a level of durability and all-weather performance previously unavailable in a well priced tire giving you the "Value of Yesteryear" with the "Technology of Today"!Quality: Superior wear characteristics result from a low-friction base compound that reduces rolling resistance and damaging heat. A steel- belted polyester cord casing and a flex resistant high-density sidewall add to the tires durabilityTechnology: Two full-width steel belts stabilize and flatten the contact patch, reducing tread squirm and scrubbing resulting in Improved handling and tread life. Swept-radius shoulder for lateral, forward and reverse traction to improve grip during acceleration as well as when braking really countsAll Seasons: Deep, wide centre grooves to channel away rain and snow to greatly improve bad-weather tractionPerformance: A stiff lower sidewall transfers steering input quickly to the road surface resulting in surer cornering response. High-modulus polyester casing is minimally affected by cold or heat over a wide range of summer or winter road conditions for superior ride comfort and control

I had one Toyo Spectrum all weather M&S purchased from Les Scwab develop bubbles. I went back to the dealer and they told me it was my fault. Then about a thousand miles later the other front tire developed bubbles. I am a 67 year old conservative driver. The Les Schwab guarantee was worthless and the Toyo Tires were junk. I replaced them with a different brand and did not go back to Les Schwab.

Put 225/70/15 Toyo Spectrum Touring on my '83 Cadillac Sedan DeVille. I lived in a remote area on the Southern Oregon coast where road surfaces were less than optimum. Considering the size and weight of my car, the weather patterns, types of roads (Coastal Ranges and River Gorges) and road condition, it was brutal on tires. I had to be "Sold" in these because I had little faith in tires from the "Orient" on my BIG (well over 2 tons) American sedan. I kept the tires maintained and rotated them every 2800 to 3000 miles. They performed flawlessly! They were very quiet considering the harsh road surfaces. The nearest WalMart (or any kind of large retailer) was 130 miles away through twisty river gorges and over mountain passes. In a car the size of mine, it was hard on any tire. I drove that passage often, sometimes daily, without incident. In fact, I was very moderately aggressive and maintained high terminal speed without braking. Even under those conditions, the tires never faded! I drove them 47,000 miles and they looked as good as they did at 10,000 miles. They gripped solid and without complaint in conditions where even Max Performance tires might have complained. They worked good enough that I could manage high avergae speeds, even in the tightest series of turns. It may have helped to know the road, but the Spectrums kept me on it! I would buy another set in a heartbeat, given the same conditions.

As an experienced/performance driver, I'd say these are not terrible in dry weather, but very hairy in the rain and hydroplanes easily even at low speeds. Definately would not recommend these.
