Follow-Up Review: 30,327 miles on tires
Well, after driving on these tires at first I was highly impressed. After this long they have been pretty reliable tires. I've read about the flat-spotting and have to agree with that on reviews. I have one tire that gives me problems and I can't seem to shake the vibration and it doesn't seem to hold the pressure well. It may have a nail in it but I'll have to get it checked out and see. Overall, I'm still happy with the purchase of these tires. They are wearing evenly and I may just purchase another set or maybe just 2 to get rid of that flat-spotting one.
Initial Review: 100 miles on tires
Just got these installed today and I'm shocked to notice that they are noticeably quieter than that Michelins. It seems that at about 60 they kinda shake a bit but I'm figuring they may still be waiting to be broken in. Haven't been in any rain to get a rate on that side but I'm a bit fearful after reading previous reviews about how they did handle in the rain. Just praying on that end.
