    Yes, had them on the car I owned 3 years ago, 2005 Subaru Legacy GT. They were a cheap all season that performed adequately for New England weather based on price. Not sure what other info you need.

    Gotcha, just want to know if they are a good bang for the buck tire. I’ll be taking a cross country road trip and I’d figured I’ll get these.

    Yes I’d say good bang for buck. Just don’t expect too much cornering performance.

    I don't know If Falken has addressed/fixed this or not in this current gen of these tires, but I had a 2 gens ago set on my Z28, and they had every sidewall bubble on them (and that was a tall 50 series profile sidewall no less), and from not even very hard impacts, or particularly deep potholes. (And I was not the only one who had that problem with these.)

    Other than that they were decent tires.

    I got a set of these for a girlfriend's car a while back. they are very mediocre. not bad or good in any way, just as average as average can be. I can't imagine they will deal well with the torque these cars have.
