Initial Review, 5000 Miles on Tires
I have had these tires on my car for one season now. I got heavy into autocross this year and well I was running all seasons, which I was stopped after my second run of the day with my cords showing on my back tire. I wanted summer tires however in chicago, I would have to get a set of winters as well. So i started shopping wheels and tires. I ended up buying enkei rpf 01s my factory wheel is an 8" i went up to 9.5 all the way around. I went from a 225/45 18 all season good year to these 275/35 18 hankook v12. What a difference. The fist time I got on the road with them I loved them they were quite and comfurtable for daily driving, however the first time I went on the expressway it seemed like when I wanted to change lanes, my car wanted to go the other way, it was a very scary expierence, I was actually driving to a track and once I got there and started to adjust my tire pressures I found that the tire show set them to 45psi... Way to high. I was probably driving around on the center strip of the tire. After I set my tire pressures this things were amazing... camparativly speaking.
