Treads Shot

Comment:
Treads wear too fast. Put these first replacement tires on my Kia Sedona minivan after doing research through Consumer Reports. The treads were shot after about 30,000 miles. I rotated them as indicated, but when I brought them in for their 4th tire rotation...my mechanic refused to rotate the tires since the treads were shot. I live in the south (no snow) so have been able to put on about 7,000 more miles, but now I am back to Consumer Reports for reviews on more replacement tires...and this time I will skip the Performance All Season tire section and will look strictly at All Season tires. Would recommend you stay away from this model tire. I too was happy with these tires for the first 10,000 miles. Many of the glowing reports must have been written by people before they put on on 30,000 miles!

33,500 miles and shot. Definitely not going to replace with this product due to the fact they only lasted 33,000.<br />Horrible

Comment:
Nice quiet tire and rides well, but even though I rotated the tires every 7500 miles they are down to the treadwear indicators. It's a big joke to call these 60,000 mile tires.
