Initial Review, 4,820 Miles on Tires
I needed a new set of tires for my Suburban, and I wanted something with excellent on road manners, low rolling resistance, and a comfortable ride. I was especially interested in the effect on fuel economy, because I converted this Suburban to diesel for improved efficiency. My running records for this car since I converted it two years ago(and running a set of Goodyear Wrangler RT/S tires that came with the car) is 26.8 MPG highway, 21.4 MPG around town, and 23.9 total MPG. The ride was reasonable (it is after all a truck) but it was noisy and "jittery" despite having the tires balanced repeatedly.
