So far these tires have been pretty good. I have yet to be in deep snow but for what I have been in is pretty good. Dry traction with cornering along handling is actually not that bad. I'd probably buy again

Have had these tires for 1 year now and they are great. Doesn't look like they have worn at all. Would definitely get another set of these when needed.

Worst tires I have ever owned (and I've been driving for 34 years!). Wearing out increadibly fast. Cornering is rough, as if the car was on cobblestones. I thought something was wrong with my suspension until I put my winter tires on and all was right with the world again.

This is the 2nd set of Exclaims I've bought since '07. I got almost 60k miles out of the last set. This is with frequent rotation(every 3k miles) and not "heating" them up every chance I get. They are definitely the best tire I've ever put on the car. I am still amazed at how well they handle the rain. This set seems to be a little noisier than the last, other than that...no complaints. I highly recommend them.

Despite the low miles so far, I'm VERY satisfied with this purchase. These tires have brought me a great deal of satisfaction. The cornering stability and skid resistance under aggressive breaking has been refreshing. I've not had an opportunity to evaluate under very high speed conditions but performance in 75MPH highway zones has been superior. Town and Country conditions have been no less satisfying. I've only had more fun in farm country up state NY on two wheels. Wet traction has been on par with dry performance. Due to the light curb weight of the auto and the large surface of these tires I expected greater propensity to hydroplane but have been very happy in the resistance. I anticipate light and moderate snow conditions to be similar to wet weather. Deep snow remains to be seen. I'll likely switch to true snow tires regardless of how fun the experiment would be.

Overall i've been happy with the tires. Unfortunately I only put maybe 1-3K miles a year on the car so it's probably not a good source of info for ratings. However, if you did make a tire that would fit my rear 17 X 10.5 inch rim I would consider trying them (another brand I put on about 3 years ago are shot already - of course being on a Cobra there's more miles put on the rears than the front!) Thanks, Rich

i only have almost 4k miles on these tires. all i can say is that i want to buy an extra set and keep them in my garage. they are that good.i had the oportunity to drive in light snow 3-6 inches and deep snow 12-16 inches and the tires performed very good. i also recommended these to a friend with a volkswagen and she loves them.the tires transformed my maxima, its like its a whole new car, quieter,huge level of improvement on grip and ride comfort. hydroplaning resistance is incredible. if u live where theres lots of rain youll love these.i really cant say enough about these tires, and mavis is by far the fastest shipping& lowest price around. i had my tires within 3 days of ordering & when i blew 1 of them over a piece of metal.. i had replacement @ my door 2 days later.. thanks mavis you're the best...overall tires are a 9-10 rating in my book..

This tire has exceeded my expectations. It represents an excellent value, and far exceeds the performance of the Goodyear RS-A tires the vehicle came with from the factory. At this point in time, there are no negative performance attributes. I was particularly impressed with how well these performance-biased tires perform in the snow. The tires complement the Maxima's suspension perfectly. The ride comfort and noise level of these tires is exemplary, especially for a ultra high-performance tire.

Tires are pretty grippy on dry pavement, but a good tap on the throttle in the rain on a turn and it will easily spin out. Road noise is very obvious and not just because I'm in a convertible, although not the noisiest I've heard on concrete. Definately not recommended for snow/ice/mud.

I've had these tires on my 98 Honda Civic EX for a year now with 36000 highway miles or more. I bought these tires because they had great reviews and they have stood up to the reviews. These are the best tires overall I have had on this car. I've had BF Goodrich and a few sets of dunlops and these are the best ones. I did upgrade the rims from a 14 inch to the 15 inch Civic SI rims, and that also helped make a big difference in the handling. I can take the on ramps and off ramps quickly like the car is on rails and these tires don't slide at all. I still have plenty of tread to go, but all of my driving is on the highway so I expect to get another 30000 miles no problems. I highly recomend this tire to others and I plan on buying a set for my 92 Ford Mustang 5.0.

I normally have the radio up so I dont hear road noise. It hasn't snowed since I got the tires. I like them though. Nice smooth ride for a low profile tire.

These are the fifth different manufacturer and type of tires I have tried on this car with the same type of driving habits and conditions and I will search no longer. After 11,000 miles of "energetic" driving around San Diego, CA, the tires show no visible signs of wear. The tread design, rubber compound, and price/value is exactly what I was looking for. My previous tires were high performance Pirellis, they were a great tire but the price was more than double the price of these tires and the rubber compound was so soft they had to replaced at 10,500 miles. Overall, the performance and value of these tires compred to the Pirellis make these tires a five star value. They are superb tires for my situation and I recommend them at every opportunity and I will glady purchase them again when they need replacement, and judging by the tread wear to date, that will be many, many miles from now.

VERY mushy tire. Soft sidewall. NOT recommended for the IS300. This would be great for the cushy LS400 or ES300, NOT for the IS300 sport sedan.
