Follow-Up Review: 44,000 miles on tires
I have 44k on these tires and looking at the tread probably another 18k to go. I had been driving them in Southern California but recently moved to Northern Minnesota and they are doing pretty well on the snow and ice based on the tread life. These are the best tires I've ever owned. They ride incredibly well, handle perfectly and the noise level is outstanding. Highly recommended.
Initial Review: 500 miles on tires
I purchased this tire after having previously used the Goodyear GT+4 and Michelin Energy MX4's. I have few miles on these but I have to say that the ride, noise, and handling on these tires is superb. I was looking at the Kumho Ecsta Platinum but at the factory sizing they only had them in the Z rating and that seemed to soft. I have a 100,000 on my Galant and I am really appreciating the difference between these and my Michelin's. That being said I am for the first time inflating the tires at the Mitsubishi specs which is 29psi front and 32 psi back. I think I had been riding 35 psi on all four for years and likely this is what all of the oil change places fill them. I am very impressed with the tire installation places tire rack recommends as their star performers.
