Initial Review, 10000 Miles on Tires
November 08, 2011

For the price, these tires cannot be beat. I purchased these because I wanted something cheap that I could have some fun with on my hatchback. I have put about 10,000 miles on them, highway and city. They are perfectly balanced between being soft/sticky while retaining wear resistance. My only complaint with them is that at high speeds, you can feel some lateral play in the sidewall when starting to corner, but once you're locked into the corner you cannot feel it at all. My car is lowered with STIFF springs so when I'm in a hard corner the tires take 100% of the abuse, even still I have taken many hard corners and done quite a few accidental burnouts on hard launches, but the tires have still shown no signs of wear. It sounds like the people who reviewed this tire and rated poorly had alignment issues. My recommendation is to mount them, balance, and get your alignment done! rotate them every 6,000 miles and it should be a pretty trouble free tire after that.
