I lay a patch and frequently squeal around corners. The tires are predictable and give way slowly (doubt I'll make 70K, but 45 is in range). I don't care about G's as much as predicting when the tire will let loose. I have 20K on my set and just bought a set for my wife's car. She's a frisky driver and she likes them too. My kid loves leaving a patch in front of his friends. No snow, so don't know.

2004 Honda CRV that I drive every day. Tires performed OK in snow and rain. But desperately need replacing after only 37,800 miles. Not so good for a 70,000 mile rated tire. So I got one good winter out of them and one not so good winter (should have replaced them before the snow flew)
How long have you owned it:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

These replaced four Big O Tires with 35000 miles on them. The more mileage the noiser they got and the harder riding they got. I have the new tires on My 2011 KIA sorento. . I feel that I have a new car! Now quiet and better riding. I am very pleased so far.

One-to-three months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
