Follow-Up Review: 3,500 miles on tires
I have had the tires on the car for quite a while now and treadwear is excellent, noise is very low and dry traction is very acceptable. Wet traction has fallen off a little from new, so I rated it a little lower, can spin from a stop with light throttle. Unexpected surprise when we had a snow storm here, the tires performed very acceptably in snow and ice when the car was driven carefully and with a light foot on the throttle. Very good for a summer tire. The price is great and the tire is very good based on that. Do not expect supercar level handling from them, but for the price and the length of treadwear, a very good tire! Thank you Tire Rack!
Initial Review: 750 miles on tires
I live in the northwest and it rains all the time, so I have a lot of experience with wet traction and hydroplaning. I have not had enough time to evaluate the wear characteristics of the tires, but so far they have provided a smooth, quiet ride with superior wet traction and very good dry traction. I will further update once I have more miles on the tires about the wear characteristics.
