Initial Review: 2,945 miles on tires
October 16, 2012

I have a little less than 3,000 miles on these tires that came as OEM on my 2012 BMW M3 Coupe Competition Package. To be honest, I haven't been able to test the limits of the tires yet, except for a few cornering exhibitions when DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) is off, resulting in lots of understeer. Most of my normal driving is city with the occasional highway, but spirited nonetheless. It's starting to get cold now so the tires do take a little time to warm up in the morning, as with every Summer Performance Tire. The problem I am having (and a good problem at that) is that this car is so good, I'm not sure if the cornering stability, steering responsiveness and ride comfort is more the car or the tires. Noise level is non existent since I have a modified exhaust but I'll be sure to monitor as the miles accumulate. I don't have any complaints on these tires as of yet. Wet traction seems to be good, and no problems with hydroplaning. Treadwear won't be an issue to after 10K miles but so far, no unusual wear patterns and tread is even. Based upon the early review, I am happy with them.
