Initial Review, 3,000 Miles on Tires
I was a little leery about buying these at first as I generally stick with the bigger name brands but I have to say, these are some great tires! When I purchased these, it was rain season so I was able to really test out the LXP's wet performance. They were excellent in the rain and only broke loose when I really got on it (V8 with 325 ft.lbs. torque) When it was dry, the grip was also very impressive especially when you consider the high wear rating. These tires also drove/tracked well and were nice and quiet. It was exactly what I wanted/expected in "Grand Touring" tire.
