Tire Cons

Noise like striking a tire carcass with a hammer when driving on rough pavement. Not sure whether or not it is an indication of future trouble.

Haven't had that much winter weather yet but so far so good. Will have to take a look at the tread and see how things are going. Not sure but probably don't have much over 3000 miles on the tires since June.

Just a overall good tire

after some wear they are not as quite and smooth as when purchased

For the price, the tire should cost a little less in price. To off set price, maybe a better discount.

Only drove in a small amount of snow/ice but these tires have great grip. What an improved ride compared to the original Bridgestone tires. Would highly recommend these tires.
