Initial Review, 1,200 Miles on Tires
Great handling and driver feedback, good road manners. Road noise is horrible compared with the original RSA's. Even worse fuel economy, dropped 12% over the OEM tires. There is a slight downhill on the drive home from work, I would always stick it in neutral to coast down it for 30 blocks. With the Bridgestone RE970AS tires, the car would actually SLOW DOWN while going downhill! Used to get 400 kms on a tank of gas, with the RE970AS it dropped to 350 kms. Finally calculated that it would cost hundreds of dollars more in gas on these tires so I returned them.
