I've read a bunch of reviews online and didn't see many bad ones for these tires. Already ordered a set of these but I wanted to know if anybody on here has these tires on their Focus and what they think about them.

yeah i have them on my SVT, bought 2 over spring break this year and the other 2 last august. i like them! better than the fuzions that i had before. little softer sidewall than the fuzions but i don't mind, it feels like i have more grip because of that since its not as rigid

I have them on my Subaru. Best tire I have ever driven on ever. 6,000 miles and not a single complaint. I can't wait to see what happens in the snow!

I'm gonna have to agree with everybody. Probably one of my best sellers, and I don't think I've ever gotten a call back from a customer saying "I HATE THESE! TAKE THEM BACK!"

You'll be just fine, so good choice!

29,000,000 miles can't be wrong!

Best tires I have ever had... My SVT feels like it has 4x4 when im driving up in tahoe, and grips the curves like a champ when im smashing around the bay area. Excelent tires, would never roll with anything else!

I've only had mine on for around 500 km but no complaints so far... they roll along quietly and have more grip than you'll ever need on the street, unless you drive like a maniac lol. and the tread pattern sets it apart from average tires, if you're into that kinda thing

they stood out for me due to their best in class snow capabilities... I'm pretty far south in Canada but we still get a fair bit of snow. here's the Tire Rack comparison video that did it for me:

plus I found it comforting that most reviews on Tire Rack were glowing.

My only complaint with continentals is the thin sidewall. Otherwise appears to be a well received choice.
