Initial Review, 2500 Miles on Tires
October 12, 2011

This is only an initial review so I could not give all ratings properly, but I must comment that I am not satisfied with the steering performance. I noticed right away upon driving that the front tires oversteer excessively, to the point of not feeling safe. If you input too much they track over fast at any speed. During testing I would input left and or right and they will roll like the sidewall is not supported enough. I am coming off stock Pirelli"s which were very predictable and long lasting (58,000). Throughout the summer 6-8 times I haul a 2800lb truck camper and pull a two horse trailer in combo so the rears get a workout and all were rotated often. The unpredictability of the front end is a little more pronounced with a rear load. Most definitely feel one has to maintain 2 hand control at all times. I will get front end checked for alignment and any other issue that may help but I am confident it is a tire issue. Road noise minimal.
