    Had these on my car from new and although I got through the fronts in around 26,500 miles the rears lasted to an incredible 53,000 and I could have maybe got another few thousand out of them.
    Just replaced all with Efficient Grip Performance, which looks like an overall replacement for originals. It is quieter than the old Efficient Grip and seems better in the wet too, not that the old EGs were that bad. New EGs very comfortable and corners superbly in wet.
    Had to play around with the tyre pressures but 35psi fronts and 32psi rear (set 'cold' at 20C) seems about perfect for ride and handling when I drive alone. Put additional 3-4 psi in the rears when I have a load in the back but maintain 35psi in the fronts, otherwise ride becomes too hard for me. As well as great ride, excellent handling (wet, dry and cornering) and good wear characteristics, these beauties turn in great fuel economy also. Best I have used actually.
    Not the cheapest replacement tyre but great value for money. Fully recommend them and will buy again 100%!

    Got these through Tesco Tyres, aka Blackcircle (gotta get those points for Florida! ).
    Replacing my winter Hankook Optimo 4S's.

    Can't praise them enough. Lovely and quiet, drive nice and smooth. Feel very surefooted in the dry and recent wet.

    Bargain price as well. Considering they're Goodyear and not some rubbish cheap make.

    Currently still have these horrid tyres on the front, since the moment they were on poorer grip than Pirrelle P6000/Mich Prims.
    Road noise is noticably increased and ride harder.
    Seems to wear must faster than the other two tyre types I've had.
    Poor when temperature is below freezing, very unpredictable on anything but a flat road.
