Initial Review, 100 Miles on Tires
May 13, 2012

I am not sure what bad reviews could come from using this superior tire.
First; one must ensure that they are using the vehicle recommended tire pressure, my 2011 VW Touareg Sport TDI requires 33 psi front and 38 psi rear.
Second; these tires are so smooth and quiet riding, yet firm and controlled on turns. They also improved the stopping distance over the stock Goodyear LS-2s, which I hated.
Lastly; these tires look to be well made, which I believe that you get what you pay for. They were expensive, but I refuse to purchase cheep tires for my heavy and powerful Touareg. The VW minimal tire speed rating is an H-speed rating, but I went a step better and got these tires in the V-rating with an N1 designator, made for the Porsche Cayanne, a similar family of vehicles!
Bottom Line; these tires are great. They are very quiet, handle extremely well, and look good as well.
