Initial Review: 17,000 miles on tires
July 23, 2010

I had problems getting them balanced when they were brand new (three trips back to the installer). The steering wheel would shake at about 50 mph. Consequently, I had some feathering before the first rotation. Finally, they took all clip-on weights off the outside of the rim and installed the stick-on weights to inside of the rim. That did not fix the problem completely but made it livable. I bought these tires because the tires I wanted were not available when I needed them. (a bow out forced an early purchase) Consumer Reports rated these right behind the Generals Grabber (the tire I originally wanted). At first I was second guessing my purchase but now, I am very satisfied with them. Consumer Reports and Tire rack helped me in my decision to buy these tires. I will consult both again for my next tire purchase.
