This Subaru Fores.ster has over 184000 miles and I have had several sets of tires, but these Kelly tires are the best! The quietness of the tires are just great, it is like having a different car.

I haven't had the tires long enough for a more thorough evaluation, but so far they are great with no problems. Idf they turn out to be a disappointment, I will update my review.

It's on the car and rolling just fine.

I wanted a good four-season tire—that would perform particularly well in the snowy climate of the NC high peaks. I chose this for its relatively aggressive tread and it hasn't disappointed. It's quiet but the tread pattern is very grippy and offers great snow and ice traction.

Replaced factory originals w/78K miles on them. From day 1 w/originals the car was all over the road when wet, and at highway speeds in the rain the car hydroplaned. These new Kelly Explorer Plus grab the wet road and have tremendously improved controllability and wet traction even in down pours at highway speeds.
Ride comfort and quietness are the same as the factory originals.

These were the tires Tire Buyer recommended and they are a great tire for the price. Two days after we put them on we drove out to New Jersey and they handeled great! They are quiet and gave a smooth ride. Tire Buyer also had great delivery service. They were there two days after I ordered them. I would definitly do buisness with Tire Buyer again.
