These are decent tires and I'm happy with them. The price was low and they work well. They are very quiet and the ride is comfortable. I've never lost traction or skidded, wet or dry. They seem as good as the Michelin tires that were on the car previously.
I've taken a couple of on-ramps at high speed just to see how they handle. The car understeers mildly at fast cornering, but there's no tire squeal and the understeer is predictable and easy to manage. I think the understeer is no fault of the tire. Volvo calls for a relatively small tire on a larger car, so some understeer is normal. The tire handles it very well.
We'll see about mileage, but my previous experience with Hercules tires suggests I'kk get about 60,000 km (40,000 miles) out of these.
