Comment:
The OEM Dunlops on our 08 Accord rode like a brick and were horribly noisy, and they were banana peels on snow. The Comfortreds helped to soften the ride a bit and reduce the road noise considerably. As far as handling goes, they are a step behind the Dunlops.If you are not a aggressive driver you probably wouldn't notice the difference. Snow traction is better, but make no mistake they are not snow tires. It stays parked in the garage when the winter weather gets nasty and I get the 4X4 out. We have over 40K on them so far and there is a lot of tread left, and the wear has been even.I have had some issue with slight vibration that hasn't been resolved. Might have to try the Road Force balancing. Overall they have been a pretty good three season tire. Have been thinking about getting a set of dedicated snow tires though. I do expect to get 70K out of this set. If you can get them with a rebate go for it.

Bought the car used in November 2013. Tires were made the end of November 2011, and Dealer put them on the car when I bought it--22,183 original miles on a 2001 Ford Taurus SE at the time-- now 21 months later, 95,802 actual miles and still has significant tread life. Mainly drive to and from work, roughly 100 or so miles per day with occassional longer drives per day over the weekends. Local tire store swears I can't have put nearly 74,000 miles on this set of tires and still have this much treadlife...
