I will be doing a follow up once I wear these out, but as of now I just had them installed the other day and I have already found out a couple of interesting characteristics about these.
For one, BARGAIN OF THE CENTURY. These things grip like tires double their cost, they have a nice aggressive tread pattern, are smooth and soft for highway driving and every day commuting, but absolutely love to be thrown around a bit. This is literally the best all around tire I have ever driven on, it was between these and the Continental DWS, the DWS was out of stock so I ended up saving $30 a tire and picked these up.
However, there is one but these tires behavior are DRASTICALLY shaped by how much air pressure you have in them, at first I started with 35 per tire, which is a bit on the high side for a Focus. The tires responded nicely and handled well, near as makes no difference to a high performance summer tire, but without the directional drama.
However, switching to the manufacturer suggested 32 psi in the front and 27 in the rear made them feel like a grand tourer, oddly soft and slow to respond.
So here is the top tip of the day, 35 psi or more and you should be golden with these things, I will be testing snow traction once we started to get that kind of weather up in the D.
