Best Uses
These were brand new tires mounted by the dealership on a used Honda Odyssey Touring that I purchased for my wife and kids. After two across the city trips in winter weather (snow and ice), my wife was not going to drive the van until we replaced the tires. Also, I noticed when I test drove the vehicle how much louder the road noise was compared to the BF Goodrich tires on our previous (same model and year) Odyssey.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Best Uses
I have a 97 Honda CRV that had good(Michelin)tires with good tread but old and cracked. I asked the tire dealer for the cheapest replacement they had and for much less than stated here, it was the Champiro VP1. Had never heard of the brand but gave it a chnce. I've never been as impressed with a tire at any price. Very quiet on the road,rolls smooth and handles well. I will buy them again.
How long have you owned it:
