I got these tires for my 2008 Crown Vic which is a rear wheel drive car and had 'em put on in November of 2015. My size was 235-55-17. These tires provided a really nice quiet ride and respectable performance on dry pavement and in the rain. They handled well on my car, and at this point one year and 20,000 miles later on these tires, they're wearing evenly and have roughly around 50% tread life. I do believe that if rotated and balanced regularly as I have done, getting 50,000 miles out of these tires is feasible. I do have a few other complaints. I will say, that as these tires wear, I feel that in my case wet traction has diminished a little as sometimes they spin if the roads are really wet. Now perhaps its my car, as rear wheel drive is known to preform poorly in snow, but these tires were awful in the winter. If the roads even had a slight frosting of snow, the rear tires would spin and I had no traction and this was even the case when these were brand new. Now, braking and cornering in the snow were decent and predictable, but getting traction from a standstill was hard, even LIGHTLY pressing the pedal, the rear tires would spin and the tail end of the car would go sideways and I'd be sitting there spinning the tires going nowhere and looking like a moron. Being I live in Western New York where we get more snow then most, an all season tire sometimes wont cut it. I installed 4 dedicated studded snow tires, and now getting traction in the snow is not a problem anymore. Long story short, if you have a front wheel drive car, these may perform OK in the snow, but if you're rear wheel drive like me, either get snow tires or look elsewhere. If you live in a state that snow and ice are not an issue, then these tires are a great bang for the buck and perform fairly well.
