good news: the tires are quieter than prior tires and mileage did not change even though these are new tires, so I expect better then the prior (average 41 mpg overall) with this new tire once it wears in a little. Bad news: these tires have very soft sidewalls which affect handling a lot! My prior grand touring tires did product a harder ride but had outstanding performance in handling. With the old tires if you wiggled the wheel the car acted like a go cart with instant response. With the new Gas saver tire when you wiggle the wheel the car does nothing, the sidewalls absorb the driver input with it's softwall flex ! it has what I call a soft loose play in the wheel leaving you with a disconnect feel of the road. Additionally, due to the soft sidewalls and tread design the car wanders on the roads that have rain groves (most of all California freeways)! If you hold the wheel firmly in a straight line the car still wants to wiggle right and left. I can make some people car sick. Pressure in tires are at MAX. with no real improvement. Sorry I purchased this tires. I would gladly trade the 2 mpg improvement (maybe) for the performance handling and non road tracking I had before. Lastly, I paid almost twice as much for this tires then my Kumo grand touring tires which lasted 65,000 miles and had at least 5-10K left in them. I would not recommend this tire ever. Reports from other users comment that tread wear is poor and many have had sidewall issues. DO NOT BUY THIS TIRES. Cannot wait it they wear out, they are getting replaced asap. Side Note: I have 100,000 miles on my Prius and this is my third set of tires. I have tested tires in a prior life for road handling and in my book, the trade-offs on this tires are not worth it.

I drive in central-coastal California, so I can't speak to handling in snow. In rain and dry conditions, I find that their performance has been adequate, no complaints. Likewise on the other criteria, (which I rated "average" just to satisfy the requirements for posting). My comment concerns the claim that they "improve fuel economy". I am very conscious of fuel economy; I bought the Prius primarily for that reason. I have been keeping obsessively meticulous records of my fuel usage and calculating my overall economy. My records show my mileage with the original-issue tires, my overall mileage, and a separate calculation for my mileage since I replaced the worn-out originals with these. I'm finding that I am getting slightly (about 2%) worse fuel economy with these than with the original-issue tires. I know, 2% isn't much, (did I say " obsessive"?) but, still, it's in the wrong direction... And, yes, I regularly check the pressure and balance of my tires.

Do not buy these tires. They do not preform in the snow and rain. With a light coating of snow I am all over the road

This note is supplemental to my review of 01/06/17. As if the previously mentioned 2 failures in 7K miles was not annoying enough, the tire that replaced the second failed tire also sustained damage deemed unacceptable to repair only about 200 miles after it was installed. Based on the '3 strikes and you are out' principle I was not about to throw more good money after bad on these tires. As Chevrolet was only willing to sell me a tire identical to the 3 that already failed very prematurely and refused even to concede 3 failures in 7.5K miles is unusual, never mind 2 in 200 miles, I called Goodyear directly. Unlike Chevrolet, Goodyear cares about customer support and satisfaction and replaced all 4 of my Fuel Max tires with far superior TripleTred tires for only $181 more than Chevrolet wanted to charge me for a single untrustworthy Fuel Max tire. Having put 70K+/- miles on a set of previously owned TripleTred tires without a single failure under virtually identical conditions to those I used the Fuel Max tires under I can say with confidence that they are much better tires for rain and snow and only very slightly noisier and rougher than the otherwise inferior Fuel Max.
