Comment:
I bought these for my 2008 Nissan Altima in January, 2010. The original tires had to be replaced as they were not good on snow(I lived in OH)I must confess that I did not rotate, balance or align them enough and winter took its toll after 40,000 or so miles on the tires. However, tread still measured 7/32 at replacement time so I think I could have gotten much more wear from them if I had been more attentive to rotation, etc. Noise was a variable. It was not noticable in city driving. ON the highway, noise level seemed to vary from none to noticable depending on pavement type.

I purchased a 2004 Toyota Sienna XLE with these tires on it. The previous owner had them installed in fall of 2010 and I bought the van two years later. The tires had 23,000 on them when I bought the van. The last two long Michigan Winters, I ran snow tires, so I estimate that I put 29,500 on them - for a total of 52,500 miles. And they are completely shot. I guess 100,000 warranty means you will get 50,000 out of them.
