2010 Buick Enclave AWD. 65,000 miles. About 75% highway miles. Still not worn down to wear indicators, but I plan to replace before the snow flies in Upper Michigan this fall. Otherwise probably good for another 5000 miles. All four tires have worn evenly. Rotated almost every oil change. Pressures checked and adjusted frequently, especially during seasonal changes or driving between Michigan, Florida and Texas. Still smooth, quiet, cosmetically sound. No problems in heavy snow in early December before we go south for the winter.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

These tires came on my new Equinox in 2011. They did great in snow and rain. I was shocked when I went to replace them and found out how much they cost. I may need to find an alternative.
