Comment:
OEM tires on our 2012 Chrysler Town & Country. Tread wear seems good, as it has plently left, but we've only got 19000 miles on the van. Problem is they have no grip. The van has a V6 and is front wheel drive, so it is going to be easy to spin the tires, but these always spin with little provacation. Makes driving in the Washington state rain particularly difficult. I know that OE tires are often hobbled compared to factory direct, but these are just bad on this vehicle at least.
How long have you owned it:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I have 88,000 miles on these original equipment tires on my 2011 Ford Fusion SEL. I get great gas mileage and very good ride. I'm ready to replace the tires and will buy the exact same ones.
