We purchased 4 of the tires w/ a front end alignment for our 2012 Ford Fiesta. We immediately noticed the improvement in the smoothness of the ride & the control of the vehicle.
I bought four of these tires for my 2011 Ford Fiesta on 11/18/2014 and one pothole later there are only two left on my car. If you hit a pothole with this tire the sidewall can split and cause a flat. I cam honestly say I have hit potholes with heavier cars and my Ford Truck and never split the side wall of the tire. Oh by the way these suck in snow, ice, standing water on the road as well. I guess price does matter when it comes to tires.
The tires are great and run very well
I put a set of four of these on my 2013 Fiesta a couple of years ago. Was budget minded, and these were an affordable set. The best I could rate them is OK. They are pretty slippery in the snow, and tend to hydroplane. On a positive note, I just blew out on tire, so I am replacing them with Coopers after 61,000 Highway miles. So for the value minded, these served me fairly well.
This tire is an exceptional tire, really no issues with it regardless of weather conditions. It improved the driving condition of the vehicle over the older tires. I would recommend this tire especially for budget minded.
