Initial Review, 15 Miles on Tires
October 19, 2012

I installed these tires on my 98 Civic hatchback and having put less than 20 miles on them this is just an initial review. Compared to the no-name off brand tires on the vehicle before, these are a night and day difference. Road noise is greatly reduced and the vehicle is noticeably smoother riding over harsh bumps. One thing that does stand out is how much the sidewall "squirms" under turning and lane changes. It is very noticeable once you turn the wheel and feel the weight of the vehicle transition.

I do not plan to do any sort of spirited driving or track day/auto crossing so this is not a huge disappointment for me. If you're looking for fast a responsive budget performance tire, this is DEFINITELY not the one to buy.
