Comment:
Tire ride is very good but the entire car wobbles when driving over roads with grooves cut into the cement. I thought that they had installed the incorrect size tire but these are the size that Buick recommends. The sidewalls seem very soft and with the handling problems I have encountered I would not recommend buying these tires.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
These came as OEM tires on a 2011 Toyota Avalon. They are just about down to the wear bars at 48,800. They have been rotated at every oil change, and run at 35 psi, year round.<br /><br />They are a relatively quiet, smooth riding tire with excellent dry road and good wet road traction. The one area of disappointment is their relatively poor resistance to hydroplaning, even when new. <br /><br />We've driven in snow, and they perform as well as one would expect from a compromise feature set as all-weather tires. Not great on ice, but no unintended deviations from the intended driving path either over the 3 years we've had these tires.<br /><br />The vehicle's highway mileage hovers around 30 mpg. The only way to find out how much is due to the tires' rolling resistance is to go with another make or model tire.
