This was OEM on our 2005 Honda Accord. We have 52,000 miles on it now and the tires have performed well. Traction seems good in wet or icy conditions. Tread wear is good. About half the tread remains and we expect about another 20,000 miles out of them. Not bad for an OEM tire! We keep them properly inflated and rotate them about annually. We have not used other tires on this vehicle so have no basis for comparison.
