Initial Review, 25,000 Miles on Tires
About to install my 3rd set of these on the Spyder, so I guess I'm happy. In Puget Sound it's mostly wet and these tires performed perfectly adequately while they have good tread. Once they get near the wear-bars, it degrades quite a bit. As a lightweight convertibel sportscar, I have 0 expectations for snow driving and indeed the tires are not helpful this way. There seem to be only two options for a matched set of 185/55/15 in front and 215/45/16 in back-Bridgestone & Kumho-and nobody in my region has compliments for the Kumhos. Factory set of tires lasted 50,000 mi, second set only 25,000. Dissapointing but reality.
