What experts liked
Mounting and balancing are no problem, with tires fitting wheels well. Very good traction, especially when cornering.
- BestReviews
An all-season suited to areas where winter is mild.
- Consumer Reports
This car tire has a speed rating of 149 mph with a unique water sipping design that makes driving on wet roads a breeze. The lower profile enhances handling and steering response. They come with a 40,000-mile warranty so you are assured of durability, reliability and great value for your money.

The tire’s lower profile design and unique tread pattern enhance steering response, while vertical sipes add to handling and cornering stability. These added sipes around the tread further increase wet traction, as well as grip on snow and ice. Circumferential grooves help to reduce the risk of hydroplaning and aid in channeling away rain water for added safety.

What experts didn't like
Tires need a few days' breaking in to ensure best traction. Excess tread wear reported on some tires.
- BestReviews
Our only real complaints with this model would be the traction and grip on ice and hard-packed snow. You need to slow down and use some extra caution.
