Comment:
I didn't really shop around for these. It was what the local tire dealer had. I thought, for 80,000 miles, the price was decent. 40,000 miles later, the tire dealer is telling me that my tires are worn out.

Comment:
I live in Idaho and tend to do more highway and rural driving. This was my second set of Cooper tires for my Honda CRV and neither set only lasted around 40,000 miles. Yet, I religiously rotated these tires as recommended. The tires are noisy but handled good in snow but not ice. For the price, you may want to try a better rated tire as they were just a pricey as the leading brands.
