Initial Review, 1,500 Miles on Tires
May 17, 2012

Bought this tire after the bridgeatones I had on previously were discontinued. These tires match up every way with those bridgestones (re960) except for hydroplaning resistance. These tries do tend to be more effected by large puddles of water, but they are still good at resisting hydroplaning. These tires are better with regaurd to dry traction (lower treadwear rating) and just as capable if not better on a wet road than my previous re960. The ride comfort being better I would atribute to the 60% sidewall as compared to the 55% of the re960. Overall a very good tire...I am very happy with my selection.

I am very happy with how these tires and holding up. They are wearing evenly and slowly I would not have expected to get the kind if mileage I'm going to end up getting out of them, I would guess 60,000-70,000 by the time I get to the wear bar and on a soft compound...this is just amazing.
