Initial Review, 100 Miles on Tires
December 24, 2012

I bought these tires based off of high ratings, but am sorely disappointed. I don't have a sense yet of how these tires perform near the limits, but I can say I'm sick about the total lack of smoothness and the level of noise. I feel EACH and EVERY road imperfection, and on anything but the absolute best, smoothest asphalt, it's like someone embedded rocks onto the surface of the tire... and the noise is there to match.

Roads that I used to not consider "bad" I now avoid because of the roughness of these tires.

This car had Goodyear run-flat touring tires as original equipment, like a previous car I had. On that previous car, I puts Michelin Pilot Sport A/S on it, and I thought they were better (payed for it though...). Responsiveness seems fine, on par with the Michelin PSS, and the feedback is definitely more immediate than the heavy run-flats that were on the car. But these are so uncomfortably loud and rough, I highly doubt I'm going to live with them.
