I am approaching 2,000 miles on this tire. I cannot be more impressed with the performance handling, ride comfort and value this tire delivers. The C2 tire is like a cage fighter dressed in a tuxedo. Push the tire hard and it shows no fatigue in the corners or hard braking even when carrying the load of this heavier European sedan. Introduce the tire to a stretch of highway, and you can sit back and enjoy the peace and quite that few of us parents with young children rarely experience.
The C2 is generous in its proportions. The tire's construction offers a wide stance which maximizes the contact patch without sacrificing comfort. The C2 gives confidence to the driver through its quick turn-in response and grip during heavy braking and acceleration. The shows stability in the long sweeping corners of a clover leaf, allowing the driver to dive in and transfer out of a tight apex with precision.
How about the wet? The tread and compound designs of the C2 does allow water to channel efficiently through the tire while maintaining grip. The tire also inspires a great deal of confidence in heavy rains with no presence of hydroplaning at highway speeds.
Overall, I have yet to experience a better tire for its price, performance and comfort. It is showing no signs of tread wear after a recent tire rotation/inspection. The tire has brought energy back to the car that has long been missed, all the while allowing me to turn off the radio and listen to the pleasant sounds of nothing after a long days work.
