Initial Review, 600 Miles on Tires
December 27, 2011

I had been looking at purchasing these tires for several months, I was encouraged by the design and the treadwear #'s. Thus far I am completely satisfied. I purchased 4 new tires and had them installed at a local tire store. They are definitely not as soft as the Goodyear LS2 series that were stock with my Kia Forte, but they handle slightly better, with cornering feeling much smoother. The ride quality is more like a higher profile tire then I expected. Ride noise is probably slightly better then the Goodyear Tires when they were new. I have one complaint... These tires handle horribly when the tire pressure is low. I had these at 32psi and the car felt sluggish and cornered poorly. Yet at 35psi which was recommended by the installer they are champs, Even on wet surfaces. I have yet to drive thru Deep snow. I will update this review when I have more miles on the car and have actually been thru a winter storm.
