Tire Pros

inexpensive durable quiet

Tire Cons

Wet traction suffered as tires aged

Great tire for the price. With regular rotations, they lasted much longer than I anticipated. Quiet ride with decent traction. After about 50,000 miles, wet traction seemed to suffer a little bit. These are certainly not performance tires, but if you are looking for a good set for commuting, these would be a good purchase.

Tire Pros

Great tires for the price. Rides smooth and minimal noise.

Tire Cons

Can't think of any.

I'm a 55 year old woman who knows nothing about tires. My son, who is a car guy, recommended these tires and sent me the link to Discount Tire Direct. They were delivered quickly and I had them installed locally. The process was easy and I saved money on a higher quality tire. Win, win :)

These tires are a little firmer than I would typically buy for a passenger car and as would be indicated by the Load rating, but I use the Pontiac Vibe to haul more stuff than what most people would probably put in this car so I deliberately chose this tire. I don't typically push it around corners like the Miata but occasionally I do and the tires have so far responded well. I don't check gas mileage, since the car typically gets over 30 anyway, so no comment there. Their also not noisy for a firm tire and yes I would buy them again for this application.

Tire Pros

Good Price for a reputable manufacture. 50,000 mileage rating is acceptable for the price.

Tire Cons

Would prefer a higher mileage rating

The tires are rate all season, but I would refrain from driving in wintery conditions. The gripping performance of the tires in this price point cannot be beat!
