As new works great in light snow/wet as well as good handling on dry. Will see how they hold up. Got a good deal on closeouts so switched to these from Conti ExtremeContacts which prob handled better snow/wet/dry but wore surprisingly fast for such a light car--despite regular pressure/rotation maintainance. Mavis did give pro-rated discount based on early tread wear. These seem a bit noisy but prob normal for fairly aggressive tread when new--not bad.

I've had 3 sets of these tires on two different cars. I love them. Unfortunately I believe they have been replaced by a new model, so this may be my last set.

Nice touring tire. Not as agile as the performance tire it replaced, but I was looking for a softer, smoother ride. This tire achieved that. Very quiet. Good all around tire.

These are very quiet tires with a smooth comfortable ride. Have not yet driven in snow or rain so no judgement on that .

So far so good! Much better tread that what the car came with and it appears to be wearing well. Not sure about the snow yet but with the heavy rains it has been fine.

I have not driven with them on snow as of yet. Some road noise from the tires. No problems with the vehicle weight (station wagon). They hold the road...

Got two, two years ago and just put on the other two when OEM's finally wore out. The ride is quiet, smooth and handling is neutral. I think you loose a little in steering feel but it suits the Camry well with a quiet ride. Can't judge snow traction with all four yet, but with two up front last year, they were fine and secure. Judging from the older pair, tread life should be 40K-50K miles.

These tires were fairly loud after purchase. After about a month or 1000 miles i think the noise has reduced but that may be that i just got used to it. For being all season tires i expected better performance in the rain and snow. Also the cornering stability is fairly week, i slide more on corners with these tires then other goodyears i have had in the past.

Tires are great.I think it's a value for money. If u buy Michelin or others the cost would be 2x. I don't feel the road much.I would buy it again. Even with 90-95mph I don't feel the road and speed,stability,noise levels,etc are great. Mine is a BMW, so not sure if it would be the same on other cars too.
