Comment:
got a great deal, couldn't beat price. Possible long tread life so I'm told. Seems to get squirrely on grooved payment, never had new tires do this before, but am told this is a common thing now days. Not a month old yet but other than that real happy with tires.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I bought these tires to replaced the original equipment Continentals which were terrible tires. I was told by my dealer to expect around 40,000 miles treadlife although the tires had a 85,000 mile treadlife warranty. But considering the price, it was not a dealbreaker. <br />However, I now have 55,000 miles on these tires and probably can get another 10 to 15000 miles. Handling, ride comfort and noise have been excellent. I will definitely consider buying another set when the time comes.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Bought because CR highly rated-at 23000 miles, first tire developed a bump- replaced it- second tire did the same thing at 26000 miles- an inspection shows that tread is worn to the point of needing to be replaced- I am not hard on tires- expect and have always gotten much better service from tires!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
