Comment:
I was impressed with the tires right out the gate; I live in Maine and we get it all... ice, snow, rain and we can have them all in one day. These tires handled all the conditions extremely well and best of all they maintained their performance even after 30k of use, unlike a number of others; like the Goodyear Assurance triple thread, which start out great and fade at around 18k. These are not a performance tire, which they don't claim to be, so corner handling and some noise would be the only weaknesses.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Very good tire and does everything a tire is supposed to do. Tread wear is very minimal, even with about 40,000 miles, should make it past 75,000 miles or more easily. Would definitely recommend these to anybody.

Comment:
I have a Subaru Outback and drive in the mountains and on dirt roads. My Hankook Optimo 747 tires say they should get 100K on the tread. However, after 46 K, I need new tires. I admit I didn't rotate them every 4K miles but they wore out early. The warranty doesn't apply after 4 years; I bought them 4 years plus one month ago.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
