Comment:
Tread seperation on three of four tires at 30K miles and high tread wear.<br /><br />Purchased set of these based on CR review.<br />I typically get rated life from a set of radials.<br />At around 30K starting noticing change in ride of car. Found that three of the four tires had seperated treads. To date these are the worst tires I have owned due to high tread wear and tread seperation and would not recommend them.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
