#5.) your review and personal comments
Good tire for what it is. Probably the best wearing tire I have owned. They seem to be cupping some after I got the f/r sways and ALK. Not a good tire for the 8/10 or more aggressive type driver. But excellent choice for the guy who drives 30-60 miles a day to work or more. Very quiet and excellent snow and rain traction. If I had to buy again for my 17" wheels I would. But for a summer tire its not a good fit. Definitely don't feel like z-rated all seasons. They grab like a H rate all season. Sidewall flex is more than I had expected with a Z rated tire.
