Initial Review, 8,936 Miles on Tires
Compared with past high performance tires I've used, these are the quietest I've ever had. It made a noticeable difference in how quiet the car was. I thought the cornering and traction would be sub-standard since most quiet tires are not performance-oriented. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the tires indeed cornered very well. They're still not quite as good as pure performance tires which corner even better, but these tires are still pretty decent. I sometimes get a good chirp from them if I accelerate too much from a standing start though. All in all, I think these tires are pretty decent performance-wise considering how quiet they are and the price is good. The wear isn't too bad. They've been rotated once so far and nothing unusual to report.
