These tires are average because of two significant issues. One: Durability, hit a bump at 40,000 miles and broke a band in the tire. Whop whop whop Two: Cornering, the straight ribs in the middle keep you going straight nicely, but add force demands when you go into a corner. They make you turn harder on the wheel than you would normally do with a more conventionally treaded tire. Sidewall impact absorption is very good and traction overall is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JasH Overall, very good job.
Overall, very good job. Tires may need to be re-balanced (car vibrate a little bid when running at high speed - over 65mph).

Rated 5 out of 5 by MysticSeer Great price, smooth ride, and good tread warranty. I only buy tires at Pep Boys.
Other tire stores cannot match Pep Boys.

We have purchased 2 sets of these tires for identical VW Sportwagens in past year. My wifes car needed new tires about a year ago and the brand name tires that came OEM were noisy and expensive. On a 16 inch wheel, the road noise is very low with these tires, and the gas mileage bumped up a few MPG. No issues with the rain here in Florida either. My wifes car gets a short commute so I now we come to the real test. I drive my car about 500-1000 miles a week. My name brand tires lasted 60k, but were very loud, spotty rain performance, and killed the MPG's. After seeing how nice my wife's car drove with the HP800's I knew that was the way to go. My sportwagen has 17 inch wheels, and of course wider, so the tires are not exactly as quiet, but they are just as smooth, and the mpg's did go up slightly over the Pilot MXM4's. Time will tell if the mileage warranty is reliable, but in a year to a year and a half I should be updating that info. First trip out and I hit heavy rain in I-95 and I-4 and had no issues. Road noise was drastically reduced and handling was on par with the pilots.

These are 55k tires that I have owned for one year and are already showing significant/unreasonable wear. The most concerning thing about these is their traction, in moderate to heavy rain I find myself skidding or hydro-planing when stopping or turning. Today after our first snow of the season (1 inch) I was unable to get out of my driveway. My Toyota RAV4 is front wheel drive but has traction control. In a one inch slush my vehicle is stuck in the driveway. That is truly pathetic. These are the worst tire I have ever owned in my life and I will now have to purchase a set of snow tires to get out of my driveway on a daily basis.
