Initial Review, 3,000 Miles on Tires
January 25, 2013

Finally ditched the OEM Bridgestone Turanza EL42 Run-Flats with 35k miles on them. They were acceptable on smooth Florida roads but the recent move to DC quickly made new tires a priority; their harshness over bumps was getting ridiculous. I opted for the Goodyears even though they are not run-flats because I wanted a high-performance all-season tire that wasn't as stiff-riding as the originals.

Positives: Much more comfortable over bumps or harsh roads. The previous review on the Subaru doesn't make sense to me; the Goodyears are notably softer-riding than the Bridgestone RFTs I had. Grip seems about the same with great confidence in the rain.

Negatives: Since the sidewall is softer than the run-flats I had before, the steering is not as crisp and direct. The car doesn't feel as directly connected to the road.

Overall I like them better than the OEM run-flats because they give me good performance with a more comfortable ride. I'll review again after they've got a lot more mileage to see if that has changed.
