I think part of the problem is inherent due to the fact that it is a relatively low profile, wide tire, (50 series)..you gain better dry handling and summer, dry traction with these tires but they come at the expense of a generally harsher ride, poorer gas mileage, thread life, snow traction and higher replacement costs... just compare the replacement costs of a base, (S model) fusion tire which is smaller and offers better epa gas mileage, (34 vs 31 hwy) with the larger tires that come with the higher trim line models...

OK, I just got new tires. Only 1 day of use, 120 miles, combined city and highway. Tires I weren't even looking at until I looked at the rankings at tirerack.com.
Bridgestone Turanza with Serenity with 70,000 mile warranty. I know it's early. But these are much better than my Conti's that they replaced, so far. Good ride, and quiet.
