Initial Review, 20,000 Miles on Tires
May 06, 2011

As you can see I have run these tires for 20k miles (3 seasons) and have been very happy with them. The cornering is quite responsive and predictable. Off the line grip is well above what I was expecting for the price and treadwear compared to a dedicated track tire. Low ride comfort was given due to the low 35 profile on an 18" wheel, but that is expected. These are wrapped around a set of 18x8 wheels and the sidewall sits flush with the face of the wheel. I expect another 15-20k on these tires before I reach the wear indicators. For the price/performance, it's hard to find anything better for a dedicated summer tire.

The only real downside is that the tires become a little greasy in the corners when it's cold (50F) and raining, but stopping distance and acceleration is not compromised. You can also expect some gravel sticking/throwing on a hot day (80F).
