Got my first experiences of driving in very wet conditions here in New England yesterday and was able to put the tire to the test. It continues to impress me how comfortable and quiet this tire is to drive. The handling is top notch. I was able to hit some puddles around 40-45 mph and the care did not hydroplane. Based on my snow and wet driving experiences I would have to say the tires hydroplanes and slushplanes less than my all season Michelin LTX MS tires and is more quiet at highways speeds. With 1,500 miles on the tires already I will measure tread depth soon to see if there is any noticeable wear.
