Comment:
These are the tires that came on my used car, which I purchased at the low milage of just 10,000 miles. At 31,000, the tires are nearly bald and I am looking for replacements at a considerable expense after only 1 1/2 years of owning the car.<br />This seems to be running theme through other reviews, that these tires don't hold their life like they should under normal driving conditions.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Came on my Passat TDI with manual transmission. so far I've been very happy with them in wet and dry conditions, good grip and quiet. They even did better in the snow this past tough winter than I expected based on CR tests. But next winter, when these will have about 30K miles on them, I will get snow tires.
