Not Ultra High Performance or all season
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.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
