Tire Pros

Quiet, easy rolling and very good ride.

Tire Cons

Will see in 50,000 miles

Within a few miles of hi way driving I knew this was a great tire. They are on an 08 Malibu which has a lot of over steer(read sport steering).These tires made it drive like a dream by putting the handle back in handling. In the last 50 years of driving these are the best for the money spent by far.
