quote:If they are the Sumitomo SRIOXN pass. The reason is two fold: 1) Very poor wet traction 2) They start a little noisy and it only gets worse as they wear. I was amazed of difference between winter tires (quiet) compared to these. A good aspect is yes price, I had four installed for $240 on my Civic by Sears. I was happy to part with the car and these tires. I will never buy cheap tires again for a car after owning these. Look at http://www.tirerack.com for user reviews also. Take with a grain of salt however.
