Follow-Up Review: 22,000 miles on tires
February 03, 2013
Now at 22,000 miles. Tires still have over half the tread left!!! I believe the small size and light weight of my car have everything to do with this. I had gone about 10k miles without a rotation and they started to get a bit noisy. After the rotation (and verified the alignment was perfect) the noise cleared up almost immediately. Also noticed in colder months, if the car is not driven for a few days, the tires develop flat spots. This is a minor annoyance that clears up after about 20 miles of driving. Beyond this gripe I would definitely buy these again.
Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires

Great tire - I have a long commute and was looking for a tire that had high performance characteristics but with a bit more mileage since I tend to accumulate miles quickly on this car.. Nice compromise. Handling sharpness and steering response is a step down from the oem conti sport contact 3's that came on this car when new. However, these are super quiet, smooth, handle rain very well, and have barely worn 10000 miles in.. I probably wouldn't like these if i auto crossed this car - but for a fun commuter, these are perfect..
