Follow-Up Review: 1,500 miles on tires
I like the ride, quietness and grip. But....<br><br><br><br> If I didn't have to drive at high speeds every day, I probably wouldn't notice the issues I've been having.<br><br><br><br>I've had to get a 3rd replacement tire, in the first two days I had to have 2 replaced due to being out of round only when the tires got warm, causing shaking. I had a 3rd one doing the same thing. Highway ride is smooth for the first 5 miles, then as the tires warm, the car begins to shake. Unfortunately the replacement for the 3rd bad tire is even worse than the one I just sent back.<br><br>This one is out of round cold and worse hot. <br><br><br><br>Tire Rack's customer service people couldn't be more helpful regarding the situation. Both Maggie and Donna are the best.<br><br><br><br>I hope to get a properly round and smooth tire soon...
Initial Review: 550 miles on tires
Using these tires on a 6 spd Accord coupe with Honda factory performance suspension, Acura TLS anti-roll bars, and custom alignment.
Only have about 550 miles on these tires, so far 2 had to go bad as defective as they went out of round only when hot.
Ride is quiet and surprisingly supple.
Grip seems good, as I haven't pushed them too hard just yet, as I'm figuring which pressures work best with these tires. I've only had a little rain so far.
Still need to get used to them as they do pick up road irregularities my old tires did not. May need to re-balance them again, not sure though.
They do get very grippy when warm, the pickup of sand, gravel and anything else on the road is very obvious. They do go through a noticeable warm up phase.
Will update as miles pile on.
