I purchased these tires in Dec 2006 with 75K miles on my 2003 Escape. It is now 8 years later with 192K total miles (117K miles of wear) and both are still running! I typically rotate the tires about every other oil change, and they have held up very well. The Escape came with the factory-provided Continentals and those were awful! They were chipping and almost becoming square and were super noisy. In comparison, these tires are a dream.
