Follow-Up Review: 30,000 miles on tires
The tires are about on the wear bars all around after 30,000 miles. They wear very evenly and last 3 times as long as other performance tires I've had. My last 2 sets were pushed far beyond the wear bars and I could only manage 15,000 miles of highway driving. The handling is not nearly as good as new, but that's expected from any tire. The response and predictability is still 100%, making these feel safe enough to keep driving on dry roads, but probably not safe for wet. You cannot beat the value of this cheap tire.
Initial Review: 7,000 miles on tires
These tires wear well for a 280 tread-wear, and are extremely quiet. Excellent performance tire for the price.
