Comment:
These tires give comfortable ride and low level noise, in my opinion. Pretty good traction on wet surface - had to launch a jet boat several time.<br />But! Two features advertised - better fuel economy and a tread pattern that ejects pebbles and other debris - are NOT there! My mileage dropped 15-20% and that compared with the old and bald Yoko Geolanders I previously had. Same routes, same driving style. Plus, any time I venture off the paved road, I collect all the gravel that would just stay forever stuck in the tire - never ejected whatsoever, so the tires produce that horse shoe noise on the road.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
Bought these tires for 2006 Toyota highlander. Did reseach on tires for my SUV. These were the best price and performace. Very disappointed in the tread life and noise of these tires. I have one year and eight months and 28,000 miles on the tires with regular rotations. I now need new tires. Tread depth is less than 3/32. Tire dealer said the tires are doing well. Was told by dealer the tires are suppose to have a 90,000 tread life. I have found that not to be true. Company was unwilling to help in any way. Do not support this company.
