Extremely dangerous under rain condition, feels like driving on ice
Although it is said to have "improved wet grip", in practice it is not really the case. I have skidded a few times in the wet at low speed!
The tires came as OEM on my Chevy Captiva. Contrary to other driver's reports, I have not experienced any problems when driving in the wet but I tend to be extremely careful when driving in the rain. However, after 30,000Km, I am having to replace all 4 tires. I failed to rotate the tires and the wear on the front tires is excessive. One rear tire got a puncture (nail) and the repair leaks (not a tire fault) and one of the front tires got a deep sidewall gouge which looks potentially dangerous. Therefore, of the 4 OEM tires, only 1 rear tire is acceptably driveable.
