Follow-Up Review: 45,000 miles on tires
April 17, 2012
Got to about 45000 miles before they started getting a liitle to low for Northeast winters. Overall, very good tire with a good balance of performance and all season capability. Not great in the snow, but for a performance all season, pretty good. Would definitely recommend if you can get for a competitive price.
Initial Review: 500 miles on tires

I only have about 500 miles on these tires, but decided to write a review cause they are GREAT so far! Bought these to replace a set of BF Goodrich Super Sport A/S, which were a disaster. While I can only provide a minimal review, I can tell you this much. Road noise is down, wet traction is phenomenal, dry traction is pretty good but not summer tire tight. Ride comfort is also much better than before. So far I love these tires, great balance of performance and comfort. If you are looking for a true performance tire, this may not be for you, but for the rest of us who's performance driving is taking an on-ramp too fast and weaving inexcusably in moderate traffic, these tires are ideal. Probably the first set of tires that I have owned, which I would actively recommend.
