I have now had these on my 2010 Mustang for a couple years and they are great. First thing I noticed when I first get them was how quite they were compared to the OEM. Traction was much better but I did put on a larger size. Surprising is the winter traction. Have driven in snow several times and the Mustang passed many other vehicles that were stuck. Also installed a set on my Daughter's Focus and she is just as happy. I am hoping they add a few more sizes as I have a couple other vehicles that I would like to put these on.

Comment:
For a somewhat high milage, and high performance tire that was well rated, these are reasonably well priced. However, I would not say these are at all UHP or All season tires. Their performance is decent, but only on dry surfaces. Even then, I don't think they stack up to the OEM Yokohama tires that came on my Mazda 3.<br /><br />Wet pavement unless very gentle with throttle, I get tons of wheelspin, traction control turns on. I can't trust them to hold the road on corners, so must take it easy. I don't drive out of control, but I definitely like to drive, so I expect my tires to keep up with my car's capabilities.<br /><br />Snow, consider these tires worthless. Constant spinning and sliding, it's not even safe to put these on in the winter. I'm now going to have to get winter tires. The OEM Yokohamas that came on the car weren't much better, so maybe with UHP tires, that's what you get. I can say, I'd only drive if you absolutely have to with these tires in snow.<br /><br />Overall, they aren't bad. I'm having issues with keeping them balanced, but that could be tires, wheels or car, so I can't blame that entirely on tires.<br /><br />I probably would spend more money on some Yokohamas if I had to do it over again.

These are rated at 40,000 miles, and I have them now past 50,000 with some tread remaining. Will purchase another set next month. 2010 VW CC. Very happy with price, quality ride and performance. No problems in hurricane rain, we never get snow so I can make no comment on winter performance
