Initial Review, 8000 Miles on Tires
With 32lbs of factory reccomended pressure for the first 2000 miles the tires handled and cornered great but had tire squirm. Raised the pressure to 35lbs and the squirm dissapeared. The tires firmed up and handle and corner even better now. It finally snowed here and the tires were very slippery on the snow and ice. Lowered the pressure to 28lbs and now they handle the snow and ice better. Now they are predictable on the ice and have better traction on the snow. Lower pressure gives the tires a little more flex. I like these tires and will overinflate 3 lbs in the summer spring and fall, but underinflate in the winter.This is good to do for most light weight cars.
