The moment I got on the road after purchase I felt the difference. The handling and the ride itself felt as if I had a new car. Got home and read that Consumer Reports recommended this very tire for my car for reliability. I'm very impressed with the manager who helped me in my choice, he did right by me!

A quality tire for a decent price. I have been very satisfied with these tires. I drive in all sorts of conditions from snow to rain and I get superior performance from these tires. The tread life of these tires is excellent so far.
