How many miles did the Goodyears give you? Mine just turned 60K and still OK. I rotated them exactly ONCE (front/back without changing sides).

Apologies to OP if you feel I hi-jacked your post. But I figured we both could learn more from this.
I stuck with the stock 225/50R17 size because I didn't want to deal with speedo/odometer errors associated with a different size. The original Eagle RS-A tires were down to the wear bar on the rear at 58,000 miles.and, with rainy season approaching, didn't want to take a chance on hydroplaning.

I've been a Michelin guy for many years, but this Bridgestone tire is VERY impressive. I can understand why it was rated #1 in the Tirerack survey (Ultra High Performance AS). Bridgestone's "Buy & Try" guarantee made this a No-Risk decision!
