265/65/18<br />I have about 28,000 miles on these tires and are almost bald and wont pass inspection. would not recommend to anyone. I am a average driver so I would expect 40,000 out of a 60,000 mile tire but didn't even get 30,000. the wear is nice and even on all four tires was a good tire when lasted but wore out before its time

After four years and some 60+ thousand miles, still performing impressively. Last month, drove through some torrential rain for over an hour, waiting to feel the hydroplaning begin. It never did. This is expected when the tires are new, but at 4/32 remaining tread it was a pleasant surprise.<br /><br />Withstands the load of our family and large travel trailer. Not the best in snow, but never stuck or ditched. Not the best fuel economy, but not far off. Good performance in mild off-road use.

This car is the daily commuter, family road trip, do it all, with six different drivers and over 175,000 miles on it! Have put 58,000 miles on these tires and will get at least 10,000 more. They were a very significant improvement over the Goodyear OEM's and the Goodyear Integrity's that were on it previously. Great wet traction, great stopping power and predictive handling. No problems in the snow at Lake Tahoe. These have been very good, all around tires with no complaints!
