Follow-Up Review: 25,000 miles on tires
My last review said tire wear would determine if I bought another set. After 25,000 miles of spirited driving I am totally satisfied. I'm down to the bars on the rear tires. However, the front has lots of tread left. I stuck a penny in different places on the tires and half the Lincoln head is covered. This tire performs well in all areas including economics.
Initial Review: 400 miles on tires
I was very unhappy when the tires were first installed. Tire noise, slight vibration in steering wheel and the car pulled to the left. After Tire Rack replaced the tire the car is as quiet and handles like it did with the Firestone Run Flats I once had. I am totally satisfied now. Tire wear will determine if I buy the tires again. The price was right, however.
