Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent replacement tires for Mini Countryman I've now driven on them for 9mon and am still delighted. My Mini had run-flats and I had just become tired of the stiff bumpy ride. These normal tires give a *MUCH* more comfortable ride. Plus my MPG has increased by almost 1 mpg, about 3%, which was a pleasant surprise. I bought a spare tire that I only carry in the car when I go out of town. For me, this is an acceptable compromise to mitigate risk of a flat while traveling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two flats, replacing after 16,000 miles I drive a lot for my career and prior to purshcasing my Jeep Cherokee I had a Jeep Compass which I had to replace tires on a regular basis and never had so many issues. I've now had two flats and a leak that needed fixed. Been told I need to replace another tire because the tread is worn at 16,000 miles. Traction in the snow is horrible. I slide everywhere in a four wheel drive vehicle. I do not recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OMG- Bad in highway grooves Just picked up a new 5 series from the dealer. These tires are fine except when driving on the new design highways that have lateral grooves cut in them for winter traction and drainage. The whole car shimmers left and right when driving on this concrete. Terrible feeling! Try hitting a patch of this going 80mph! Trying hard to get the dealer to replace them!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tire Ever! I purchased a new 2017 Honda Civic EX Hatchback, and thankfully it came with these tires. From the start I noticed the extreme difference in ride. Somehow, they have perfected the balance between performance and comfort. The ProContact TX are responsive when you need to grip the road, but comfortable without too much road vibration for those long drives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tire I purchased a New Chevrolet Malibu with these tires on it. I don't have 5000km on them and I have a bulge and tear in the sidewall of one tire. These are very nice riding tires, excellent tread pattern and great performance in wet or dry conditions. I am just hoping that the bulge and tear is a one off incident.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get snow tires 3 season Tire not 4 These came on a VW we bought. The dry and wet they performed well. They are a bit tall so they aren't sports tires, but you can choose different profiles. Snow - forget it. The compound is so hard that they last longer but have virtually no traction in cold weather. Just get yourself some winter tires.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Replacing it for the 3rd time within 12000. Already replaced two after hitting potholes and formed bubble on the side, today i hit a curb and it went flat. Going to get a third one today. Also I see someone pointed it out so im not the only one, if you are driving on those concrete highway with some lines it will shift. Audi A4 Allroad.
