#4) 80% highway 20% city

#5) Yokohama Avid

#6) I have 35k miles on them. Car is bone stock with 180K miles.

Alot of people comment that these tires are wiggly in the corners. The best description I've seen is that they are like riding on marshmallows. The people saying this have not given the tire enough time to "set-up". Mine were wiggly until about 5000 miles were on them, then the sidewall stiffened up.

Too bad that the tires continued to stiffen up and they are now harsh riding and very noisy. They have really good wet and dry traction but they tend to understeer in the corners. The understeer could be partially because of the suspension setup in our cars.

Snow performance is ok but I would not want them on a 2wd vehicle. The fronts like to slide a bit too much when approaching stop lights. My F150 4x4 with General Grabber AT2's will beat the LGT in the snow hands down, no competition, laughing while the LGT is busy crabbing into the snowbank.

Will be replacing them within 5K miles so I got 40K miles total on them.

Will not buy them again due to the MASSIVE road noise and harsh ride they produce on the goat paths Wisconsin calls roads.

Will be buying a set of Yokohama Envigor W94's to replace them as my old Yoko's were a better tire. I had Yoko's on another car in days past and they were a good tire on that vehicle too.
