Initial Review, 170 Miles on Tires
After riding on these tires for only 170 miles,during a drought,I can already be sure of a few facts.The original Goodyear RS-A's were a decent tire for only about the first 10K miles. They deteriorated progressively since.At 40K and 5-6/32 tread left,the only thing that improved was predictable handling(bad as I now realize).Those were the 3rd or 4th Goodyears that I have "inherited".They were by far the best at first,but they deteriorated much faster than the others.I would never purchase a car with Goodyears unless there was an allowance to buy new tires.I enjoy feeling the road under me,and the Michelins accomplish that,while also being the quietest and most predictable tires Ive owned.I might be even more pleased with UHP all-season tires.If these grand touring tires perform even close to the way they did in Tire Rack tests,reviews,and customer surveys in rain snow and treadlife;I will be happy enough with them.The sport suspension on my Fusion has come alive way more even than when I drove it off the lot.It is like a different car.Better in every way with absolutely NO adverse trade-offs!
