Initial Review, 5000 Miles on Tires
July 23, 2011

This tire blew me away. AWESOME ride! I noticed the moment I drove from the installers how quiet they were. My rating does not reflect winter driving but I will update that when it gets here. Dry traction is terrific for my spirited heavy foot. Wet traction is great too, but with a 6.0...traction will always be an issue with any tire. I could not have been happier with this tire...until a few days ago. I got a steering wheel shake and figured the tires were out of balance. NO big deal it happens a lot with these 18 rims on these cars. The technician said he needed 10 oz of weight to balance the right front!!! That is waaaay too much. So I figured it must be out of round or there is really something wrong with it. Well to my amazement, I contacted Tire Rack that evening and the next day they had a new tire on the way. NO QUESTIONS ASKED!!! My next set of tires will come from them no question. I cannot compliment and thank Tire Rack enough for their awesome support and assistance. As for the tires...I LOVE them!
