Initial Review, 12,500 Miles on Tires
January 25, 2013

I wanted to love these tires but they just don't deliver for me. At my earliest chance, I am going to switch back to the Goodyear OEM tire, it was much better overall. So here is the run-down: As mentioned in other reviews, my tires are beginning to cup. I am sure that minor vibration and increased noise will only get worse. My suspension, by the way, checks fine. Fuel economy: I saw no benefit by using these tires over the OEM Goodyears at all reasonable tire pressures from 30 psi to 40 psi. Below 32psi, they are mushy, above 34psi, the ride is very harsh compared to OEM. Dry traction and handling are wonderful! Wet traction and handling is very good. Hydroplaning is average, snow traction is limited but they do OK on ice compared to OEM.
