Realize these are not Winter tires, but have been able to get by with all season tires in upstate NY before. ABS often comes on upon braking and gets very little traction when temps are below freezing & with more than 2 inches of laying snow. Tire tread has held up nicely thru 20,000 of 70,000 warranty, but considering purchasing winter tires because these are simple unsafe for winter driving.

Tire ren for 25K Mile and it start having problem, they give 70K warranty. but and warranty is such a way that they cant change tire at any cost. if your tire run for 50K and 20K remaining in warranty then they will give you some discount on next tire but they wont do anything to that tire. its worst warranty structure and firestone tire never run more then 50K ever.

i got 40K of daily driving and a few long trips with this tire. rotated every 6-8K. ive gotten thru a few icy ramps that other drivers spun out on. the handing and ride on this tire are avg at best, but i did get excellent mpg with avg road noise. i wanna get kick butt tires for my next set and these oem's arnt what im looking for.

I think these tires are the same ones that came with the car when i bought it brand new. it's a pretty decent tires, but in the beginning it used to make sound when i made a sharp turn, but after a while it doesn't do that anymore. It's a nice set of tires.. but i do like goodyear eagle tires a little bit better. but more than the tires, i really liked tirebuyer, it was free delivery and very competitive price. how can you beat that?

you mentioned "free delivery" in your review. Was that to your place or the tire installer?
