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...

I RECOMMEND NOT TO BUY THESE TIRES. <br />In short, these tires wear fast, produce much road noise after 10k and thumping noises with vibration at the steering wheel. With wear they become exponentially worse.<br />Long story: I bought mine in 2012. The first year was great with some minimal road noise where I could have them rotated and balanced and the issue went away for a short time. Then 2013 came and with more wear on the tires the balancing didn't work as well. I thought I had a wheel bearing issue and replaced all four wheel bearings at a high cost. The noise didn't go away and began to increase especially on the highway. Researching this, I found that to reduce (not eliminate) the noise I had to have the tires road force balanced. One can find out more by doing a search on road forced balancing (of course this is a pricier way of balancing your tires). With more research, the issue that came out was that the tires were not round from the outside perimeter and quite a few others were experiencing the same issue. I found that this was also the case for the Comfortred Touring as well as the Assurance which are what I have. I hope this helps. I wish I could do more like put links to where I found all my information and I hope the best.
