What is good?
Comfort
Handling
Looks Nice and its a quiet, comfortable tire.  Inexpensive...They don't seem to pick up tire-leak-causing debris :)
What is bad?
Snow/Ice Performance
Treadwear
Wet Performance
No traction in ANY possibly slippery weather.  On a Saturn ION, mounted in the front, 205/55R16 brand new - snow traction is non-existent.  I was skating around all Winter in these things.  Totally allowed me to realize how amazing my Saturns ABS is!  Also, These tires strangely require ROAD FORCE balancing.  No Other Method is capable of balancing these tires...Road Force costs $45 to balance 2 tires. Limited dry traction when you get down to 6/32's and lower. I always hydroplaned in these but at least it was always in a straight line. I got 15,000 miles on these with a perfect alignment and suspension.
Comments
Today I found out these are similar to cooper tires...geez...If I would have known that at purchase time...I would have bought another brand tire.  Coopers are the only tire that has zero traction in the snow...so it all makes sense now.
