Initial Review, 3,500 Miles on Tires
This is a far, far improvement over my OE tires on the Matrix. I just purchased these tires right before we had the rainstorm in SoCal that flooded Qualcomm Stadium, and WOW! These tires never felt like they hydroplaned, not even for a second. Even going through pockets of deep water (which any tire will hydroplane over) the car continued to track straight and never drifted or wandered. In moderate rain I was doing bursts of 90 m.p.h. on the freeway to see just what these tires' limits were, and I felt confident and comfortable. In heavy rain (moderate freeway flooding), I still felt in control at 55 m.p.h.
