Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires

I replaced the OEM Michelins with these tires after reading the many positive reviews here, and so far the tires have lived up to the praise. Wet, dry, and snow traction is infinitely better than the Michelins making the car handle better than ever. 2 minor complaints would be that I noticed my gas mileage took a hit once these tires were installed, about 2-3 mpg--but I suppose that is to be expected from a tire that has much more grip. The second would be that there seems to be a slight wobble occasionally--but it seems to be just the road imperfections being communicated much more due the type of tires these are. I cannot comment on the treadwear yet, but overall I'm happy with my purchase.
