Initial Review, 3,500 Miles on Tires
I posted a review on the second day I owned the tires. This is an update.. The O/E tires, Bridgestone RE050a were replaced by the DW's. The tires (MFG size) have been on for about 3 months and I've become even more impressed! Couple of points....originally, at lower pressures, the tires were not as responsive as the 050's. However, as a person who believes in higher tire pressures, (47,000 miles out of the 050's on the rear, 63,000 on the 050 Pole Positions on the front) I increased to just below sidewall max... 50 front, 48 rear. Handling sharpened immediately, however, the tire was riding too much on center of the tread. Apparently, the DW's are not as "flat" as the 050's. I decreased the front to 48, and 44 in the rear. Based upon the dust markings of the tire, it's riding just where it should...with a just a portion of the shoulder in contact. This is more evident on the rears due to the independent suspension.
