Initial Review, 4,000 Miles on Tires

These tires were original to my car when purchased. Had I known how bad they were with wet traction I would have asked the dealer for different tires before I bought this car. I have a hard time driving when it's wet or raining. You have to baby the throttle in this car with these tires when it's wet out. The traction control is working overtime just trying to keep you on the road unless you are going way less than the posted speed limits. It feels unsafe at normal speeds when it's wet out. When it's dry it's an average tire at best. The cornering stability is very shaky. They are unpredictable when transitioning switchbacks. If you like to actually drive your European Sports Sedan then ditch these at the earliest and get some Continental Extreme Contact DWS's.
