I'm putting on winter tires in October, so I can't wait to see what difference it makes in the ride and noise ...
I had a wet parking lot and tried to get it to spin out.. the tires stick really well in the wet. I went through a few inches of water the other day and didn't hydroplane. Mine have 16k miles and lots of tread left (although its 95% highway).
The tires are good. I will probably get something else when they are worn out, but i don't feel the need to spend $$$ on something that is fine.
