Initial Review, 30 Miles on Tires
February 29, 2012

I bought these tires and thought I got a good tire for the price. As other reviews wrote, they cupped early in their life, even after 2 alignments and proper rotation. Cold weather does have a flat spot until the tires warm up. It was my wife's car for a while but I got it now. She got used the noise or maybe it wasn't as bad in the beginning. She has a new car and the GY tires are quiet. She really notices the difference in sound when using my car now (her old car). The road noise is bad, I have to turn up the radio and sometimes that road hum just works its way into the music. I am all for giving things a proper chance, but I would not buy again. I just cannot deal with the noise. The tires, tread wear, is good so I won't buy new tires yet. I will buy something else other than these. If I knew about the road noise I might not have bought them. You live and learn. They do handle well, stop well in many conditions. My main issue is with the noise.
