Initial Review, 10 Miles on Tires
June 22, 2012

I can't believe how epic these tires are. I got them as the only replacement for lower aspect ratio 96-00 civic 14" steelies. They are so freaking aggressive its beautiful. Granted this is not going to be your choice of tire for grandma but i've been thrilled so far. I took it out on my normal"test" run, accelerating and braking like i've never driven the car. Off the line they grab and go and haven't squealed once. I'm used to braking a little longer, once again they grab just right and cut my braking length down. At first i found myself slowed down way earlier than needed and took a few tried to find the new shorter 60-0 stop distance. Turns are back to being exciting again, there is a hill with a steep grade and S turn combo that I just ripped through lets just say without a second though to how fast i was going. I don't think i've ever taken that turn and not has issue.

In short good choice for tires. I can't say how tread life will be nor how road noise is. I drive with the window down and stereo up and didn't notice.
