travel to Washington D.C. was outstanding - Tires were installed afew days before leaving for D.C. - Tires handled the NJT and the Interstate 95 with excellent balance and control - I have not driven in the snow yet but I was happy the way it handled in the rain - I was pleased with the information given by the salesperson in enabling me with making a consumer educated purchase. He was to able explain the difference between tires and why it is important to purchase the right tires for my car.

I have to tell you, my experience at Mavis was wonderful, I met a employee, his first name is Paul, I don't know his last name. He helped me through the process of buying tires and also advised me about my brakes. He took care of my car also stayed late on a Sunday finishing my car. He went out of his way, and in today's world. You don't find that often. He made a loyal customer out of me...

Car has over 145,000 miles on it and these are the best tires so far. It has always had V (speed rated) tires on it and therefore have little tread life. Why this car needs a performance tire is beyond me. So far are very pleased with this set of tires and expect long tread life.

So far, these tires have been excellent. They ride quiet, handle well, and give adequate traction in the snow. We haven't had deep snow, so it is difficult to give an accurate rating there. The tires are obviously not a snow tire, and will not handle deep snow as well. Otherwise, an excellent tire.

I paid a little more than a less agressive tire but they are well worth the investment. In snowy weather i drive with confidence and feel much safer.

I live on a dirt road and these tires handle very well on them , which I would have rated a 8/9 out of 10 if there would have been a category for that. Where I live I get a lot of snow and the roads I travel are mostly back roads as well as some of the last to be plowed. I am very happy with my purchase of these tires as well as the tires I have on my Ford F150 which are BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A 275/65R/17 which I would rate a 10 out of 10 all day long! Which I will definitely purchase again. As I would have for my Chevy Equinox if it would have been a full size SUV as the side walls are stiffer on the Long Trails. But I am very happy with my purchase of the Advantage tires and will probably purchase again when I need tires again if I still have a mid sized SUV. But as always I have never not been happy with any BF Goodrich tire I have owned unlike other brands I have made a mistake and wasted my hard earned money on. I had the tires installed on my Chevy at Mavis Discount Tires in Batavia , NY. and the gen

Hard to judge treadwear after 400 miles. Been great so far through snow and slick spots. Ask me again in 10,000 - 20,000 miles if you want real answers.

I am glad I selected these tires, and would/will buy them again. They are excellent overall performers, quiet, and have just the right balance between tread wear and adhesion. The first 20 miles made their cornering properties vs. my prior tires very obvious. In heavy rain at highway speeds they show no propensity to hydroplane, where my prior tires would cause the cruise control to "lock out" due to traction loss.

Great tire. Compared with T rated Goodyears and Generals, it's like night and day. The wheel responds quicker and the car corners bbetter. Ride is still smoooth. No driving in snow yet, hence no snow ratings.

I purchased these tires to replace the Cooper Lifeliner tires that I previously had on my car. The real test came when we had an early snow a few weeks ago. These tires did an excellent job when I was driving up and down the very slippery streets. It was a wet snow which is the worse in my opinion and these tires did the job. I would strongly recommend these tires to anyone looking to purchase a set of new tires.
