Follow-Up Review: 3,000 miles on tires
January 05, 2012
I love these tires now that I've put a few more thousand on them. I just beat an early 80s Mustang GT with my V6 cause the tires hooked up so well from light to light, bout 1/8 mile.the Noise level has decreased significantly since the last review, now I don't have to yell to talk to my passengers...
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires

I don't see my 0mi posting of this tire, but to reiterate, break in time driving is hazardous as I slid down a ramp and but now with 500-1000mi on them they stick like no other... Now I can't really even do a burnout with them after the tires are heated up... Tried doing a burnout from a patch of water and the tires still hooked up though that time I just floored it without using the brakes... Weaving around people going 45 in a 65, the tires hook up well and hold... during U-turns though, my rear tires push my car into under-steer but that's a common trait with all RWD cars... Haven't really driven in rain yet but my GF said it's way better than the last tires, but she's the responsible driver (Not parker though lol)... I can tell you the size I have with the Razor rims I have from this site (275/40/ZR17), at full lock the front tires rub ever so slightly, and you might think your tires have popped or you ran over a water bottle and it popped from the sound, but it goes away, and right now it's just a squeaking rub sound... when people say the tires don't give good feedback, it's really they aren't using the lower profile ones, the ones I have give plenty of feedback... I more than likely will get these again...
