First Glance. I purchased these, with A LOT of swaying by the sales person, and so far am pleased. I have put about 150 miles on them so far on my Prius v.
The ride is smooth and quiet, until you hit a bump, they are somewhat stiff on bumps; not a Grand Touring tire.
They are very quiet.
Spun easily on dry road on a hot day when I punched the accelerator while turning, given that I am driving a Prius v, makes me wonder how good the traction really is.
The amazing thing is that after replacing my well worn OEM Toyo tires with these, I have seen absolutely no drop in my gas mileage. When I replaced tires on my previous now totaled) Prius v, the fuel mileage dropped about 4 mpg until they were broken in after a while.
BTW, one off the tires was manufactured two years ago, the other three over a year ago. Not sure if they generated a large lot, or if they are slow moving.
Offered alignment for $89 (going rate) after spending $800 on four tires and oil change, figured that they would have provided a deal on that.
AC at the TQ that I went to was almost non-existent on a 90 degree day.
Wait time with appointment to get finished, two hours and fifteen minutes.
Ride comfort: slightly above average
Noise: above average
Fuel economy: excellent.
