Initial Review, 1,000 Miles on Tires
March 28, 2013

While I have only had this tire for about a month and about 1,000 miles, I wanted to mention a few observations. First of all, this tire is ridiculous quiet. I bet these give off at least 90% less road noise than the stock Michelins that came on the Fusion.

Second, the cornering / start traction (I have a manual Fusion) is amazingly good. The stock Michelin tires were never this good, even at 65 miles on the odometer when I bought it.

The only negative I would list that my car seems to track from side to side a bit more on the road, but I am not 100% sure that is instability in the tire or the fact that I "upsized" from 225 / 50 / 17 to 235 / 50 / 17. At any rate, it is not a real issue since I know my car is in alignment and I tend to be a fairly aggressive driver anyway. Thus, the starting and cornering traction make up for anything else.
