Comment:
Lasted more than 30 000 miles and wear was even. I own a 2002 BMW 530 with 52 k miles and thread pattern could be the reason of noise level. although it could be related to car brand and size. CR probably checked decibels and did not find a significant difference with the Continentals that were OEM. I like to enjoy the ride without obstructing traffic flow, but avoid sudden acceleration and stops. But this tires have shown great grip when needed.

Comment:
These are on a short wheelbase 1600 lb car so ride is allready stiff, but pavement cracks and potholes give quite a bigger thud compared to the Sumitomo HTR 200's I replaced. <br />I really miss the HTR's that where cheaper, lighter and gripped well enough for the price/mpg. Mileage has gone down from mid 40's to upper 30's (spoiled?). <br />Unbelievable grip and turn in/responce on a small lightweight car (+1,lowered 2).<br />Treadwear is good so far at 7.5K.<br />Not noisy for me.<br />Use snow tires in the winter.<br />Unidirectional pattern is pointless.

Comment:
If the price of these tires is your price point, then these are a good choice. If you drive a very powerful car, drive aggressively, or will go to the track, these are not the tires for you. <br /><br />They are perfectly good for what they cost, but the treads cup & wear unevenly, the tires are noisy from new, and are pretty useless in snow for a M+S rated tire. You will get good, if inconsistent mileage out of them. They lasted longer than I wanted them to. <br /><br />With all that said, they are no worse than any other tire in this price range, and might even be a tiny percentage better. I am replacing them with Continental DWS. We will see how those are. <br /><br />These tires are proof that price is almost always directly correlated with tire quality. Nice job by BFG for an inexpensive tire, but I'll spend more for a better tire next time.
