Everything is good, except you only get 40,000 miles. Far from the rated, but for the price I'm not sure I would have gotten a tire that could have hit 40,000 for 78.00 per tire.

The tires handle well and are good in the noise department. However, the tread is close to the tread wear indicators, at only 43,000 miles later, echoing the mileage of some of the earlier reviews on these tires. That's a huge gap from 85,000 (Kumho, are you listening? Probably not.). The number of reviews with mileage on the low side also calls into question the trustworthiness of the UTQG rating of 680 that supposedly indicates tread wear life. Maybe a lot (or number of lots) problem ???
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I live in So Cal, Big City so a LOT of street driving but I get out on the Freeways a lot also and I'm completely happy with my tires. I was happy with the price, I bought them on sale week end I LOVE REBATES! I have a Jeep but it's not anything I take off road so these tires are perfect for me. They do have a hum but I don't mind car noises lets me know my car is happy too.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
