Initial Review, 3,100 Miles on Tires
July 30, 2012

Initial review after 3,100 miles: The tires are very comfortable and compliant tires, well suited to the category of Touring tires. On surface streets and highway, the tires are very well behaved. Along the same line of thought, these tires do not like to be pushed very hard. On my FWD car, they cause a significant amount of understeer when pushed even a little bit. I regularly get tire squeal when turning at speed (+20mph) on surface streets. However, tire wear is not discernible at 3,000 miles - and that was the driving factor when choosing these tires. Jury is still out on wet and snow traction as there hasn't been enough of either in Cleveland yet to make a determination.
