Comment:
I have had these tires for just over a year now although they were not on the vehicle for almost 6 months last winter. Actual drive time on the tires is less than 6 months. They might have 14000KM on them and two different mechanics have examined them and said there is 80-85% tread still however, they have alos commented that these are the loudest tires they have ever heard on road test. Brakes, wheel bearings and alignment have all been checked or replaced with no affect on the level of noise. Would not recommend.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
After first six months, rear tires started cupping. Noise of tires have been overwhelming. Firestone dealer stated that the noise would subside as the tires leveled out after rotation. That did not happen!! With less than 40,000 miles of useage, The tires need replacing!!! 70,000 mile warrenty??? Not honored! Dealer stated that I was supposed to rotate the tires every 6000 miles??? Not what I was told by the dealer who sold them to me. Warrenty no good!! I drive 25,000 to 30,000 miles per year. These tires don't last in regular highway driving!

Comment:
I have read reviews that said these came OE on their vehicle. This is a replacement tire. The OE fitment is also an Affinity. The 2 tires are very different. It is easy to confuse the two. They also made an Affinity LH30 which is also different. This Affinity is the 70k T Rated tire. A great tire at Firestone on sale. I would recommend these over any other tire in any brand.
