Initial Review, 12,000 Miles on Tires
August 06, 2012

I reviewed once I first got these tires and I loved them and still do. I had General Exclaims and liked them better and they lasted longer. I think I will only be getting around 25k on these tires, when I need at least 35/40k a set like my generals. I rotate and balance on each oil change, so I do preventative maintenance. I'm not sure if its because of the 255 width, but during heavy downpours I will NOT "fly" in the rain. I feel as if the steering is numb, could be GM numb steering and my mind and not the tires. Handles good in wet and dry, but I'm just not too "happy" about these compared to the Generals I was so use too.
