Comment:
Installed on a RAV4 as emergency replacement to fast wearing OE Yokohama Geolandar. Actually pleasantly surprised by their performance. Very good handling and braking in both dry and wet conditions. Work OK on fresh snow, but not exceptional in icy conditions. Manageable in PNWet winters, even with the snow storm we had this year. Probably not the right tire if you live in real winter weather lands. Wear seems OK at 20K miles. Price was surprisingly low, even if they do not make the rated 65K miles, I am not going to be worried about it.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Not quite 2 years (22mon) and 20,000 miles and they're no good! Mostly highway and city driving, nothing very taxing for them I would have thought.
