I've owned these tires for over four years now, have over 90,000 miles on them, and have never had any significant issues! <br /><br />I have a Honda Civic Si hatchback, which requires a tire that had a high speed rating. However, I also needed an all weather tire to get around in the snow and ice of the Nebraska winters. These perform better than the OEM tires, are much quieter, and have plowed my little hatchback down thousands of miles of highways, even when covered with 8 of snow/ice/slush with no/minimal loss of traction! <br /><br />I've read some reviews with people who have had ride issues. As for my experience, any issues I've encountered have been resolved by rotating and balancing the tires and performing an all wheel alignment on the car. <br /><br />I'm planning and preparing to buy these again (whenever they finally run out of usable tread!)

Comment:
Though the Assurance is a quiet tire, with good handling, and a comfortable ride, it is not a tire I will buy again. I have used these tires for 2 years and 40,000 miles and have worn them out. I have a Toyota Prius and all the way to the end of their life gave me 54 to 56 MPG. Goodyear states 70,000 but mine only made 40,000. Not happy about that.

Bought these for the advertised long tread life.<br />I've always run Michelins on my vehicles; these don't even compare.<br />I'll be going back to Michelins for the smooth and quiet ride.
