BonYogi - (11/12/2011) VM Passat TDI Sedan, mostly in city driving. Was a 60k warranty tire, at 23k these tires are completely worn to the treat marks. These are made for and sold exclusively for Discount Tire. Discount will honor the tread wear warranty (pro-rated), but this doesn't refund any of the cost of mounting, rotating, etc. Basically, these tires are poor tires that I feel Discount Tire sells to reap the reward of premature, repeat business when the tires must be replaced. You are held "hostage" to getting the replacements for these from Discount Tire, because other tire vendors do not sell these, and therefore, can not honor the tread wear warranty. The tires handle poorly when compared with Michellin MXM4. On concrete pavement, the car will "shimmy" left and right. Fuel economy dropped from an average of 36MPG (Diesel) to 32MPG with these tires installed. These tires have had to be patched, twice, for road hazard (nail/screw). They seem more susceptible to puncture than other tires; I never had to patch more than 1 tire during the lifespan of the set before I installed these. I suspect these are the tires the old lady throws though the Discount Tire window in their commercials.
