Initial Review, 32,500 Miles on Tires
January 02, 2013

These came stock on my 2011 Honda CR-Z. Its a FWD Hybrid with a manual transmission. These were good tires for coming stock. I got over 32000 miles on them. Even treadwear and fair traction. They're not the best I've ever driven on, but they were reliable. They were satisfactory in the snow. When there was good tread on them, it was safe to drive them, but they were not astounding.

The siping in these tires doesn't go deep, so after 25000mi or so, they were effectively bald tires. I drove them to the wear indicator but I should have replaced them before now.

The had great handling characteristics in corners and dry, and road noise wasn't excessive. I'm going to try some Kumho Ecsta 4X tires next. I'll drop in for a compare after I drive on them a bit.

Overall, good tire, and kept my family safe.
