Good but not Excellent

Comment:
I thought these were a good compromise for my 2002 Avalon and got them for $110 each. They are much quieter than my previous tires, which were $90 each, and the grip is better, but not great. Now that they have 60K miles on them there is still plenty of tread but they are getting noisy. Snow and ice grip is bad to unforgiveable, and I got stuck very badly in front of my own house with these. It took hours of digging out and chipping away at ice and a lot of black tire was on the ice. They came out with the plus version and apparently fixed all the problems with these. Next time, it's Michellins all the way. I should not have cheaped out.

Comment:
The only complaint is the tread wear. There is currently 46,000 miles on the tires and they are overdue for replacement.Will do so this month.Barely any tread left.<br /><br />Tread wear is the same for all four tires. They are rotated and balanced every 5000-6000 miles.
