Initial Review, 11,000 Miles on Tires
December 31, 2012

In the 23 years I've been driving I was never 100% happy with a set of OEM tires. However, this may be the first OEM tire I would highly consider buying again. Did I just say that?
I'm a "spirited" driver who has numerous track days under his belt so I know very well how tires act when pushed to their limits - and these have very predictable handling when pushed to that limit. Granted, this is my 1st SUV due to a new baby in the household, (at least it was thankfully available with a manual trans)I'm still very happy with them for the intended purpose of my dad-mobile. Add in a quiet and smooth ride and don't see any reason to switch to a different tire once these wear out.
Now, would I put them on my track car or sports sedan? Heck no. But on my SUV while roaming the mall parking lots and mean suburban streets (with the occasional highway on-ramp romp)... yes!
