Follow-Up Review: 1,000 miles on tires
December 15, 2012
Pleased so far 1000 miles later...We haven't seen any impact on fuel economy. Still getting between 29 and 33mpg hwy with speeds between 55 and 65mph. The wet traction is superior to the previous OEMs.<br><br>They are comfortable and quiet, but you won't win any slaloms on these. Cornering is not crisp, the tires seem to give a little. And I feel a little more body roll. Mainly on sharp turns at speed and turning at intersections. It doesn't take long to notice it, expect it, and adjust yourself. Not sure how to quantify this, but I feel it. Not a safety issue....but if you want performance handling, you will be disappointed. If you want comfort, then you're happy. I have a Honda CRV so performance isn't a big deal...but I will watch the integrity of the sidewalls, etc.<br><br>When I purchased I got a mail-in $40 rebate form to send with receipt. I opted to scan everything and submit via web. It's been 4 weeks and the claim status is still processing. Hoping to get this before I do last minute shopping...<br><br>Merry Christmas to all!<br><br>Too early for snow or treadwear.
Initial Review: 25 miles on tires

Less than 50 miles, too soon to provide any meaningful rating so will update as we accumulate mileage. But this is to provide a history, and no better place to start than at beginning.

About 12k mi/year, combined DC Metro beltway & city. My wife & toddler's car.

Day after hurricane Sandy...less than thrilled with wet traction on the OEM Bridgestone Duelers and replaced at 32K. Planned on getting new rubber anyway before winter arrives.

Came to tirerack.com first and reviewed and filtered and sorted everything out. Tire dealer didn't have my first choice (Goodyear Tripletreds) in stock so, like an impatient customer, went with second choice: Dunlop Signature CS. We immediately feel huge improvement in wet grip during constant rain. It's like night and day, however it is compared to poor factory OEMs. But already feel more confident.

Will update at meaningful intervals. Thank you.
