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.

I bought these tires after much investigation for my wife's Camry and recently my Avalon. Be sure to buy them when Goodyear offers a mail-in rebate which saved my $160 for each installation. Also, be sure to rotate your tires regularly to promote even wear. I have done this faithfully over the years and have gotten maximum wear. A front/rear alignment does not hurt also, especially if you live in pot-hole ridden areas like we do.
