Initial Review, 35,000 Miles on Tires
These might be the best tires I have ever had. Compared to the Mich originals, much more stable and stuck to the road. I did go down to 55 profile ratio from 60, so tires are a smidge smaller. This kay effect speedo readings and mileage a little, but not really noticeable. Excellent (really, superb) wet traction. But these are not 60K mi tires. They are rated at around 40K I think I got around 35K. I did have some alignment issues that may have caused slightly higher wear. My car has the V6, and I do enjoy a little extra zoom-zoom now and then. So I have now bought another set, and all is good again. Alignment has been set, and the car tracks better than ever. These are great tires; compared to the OEM, the car felt like it was on rails.
