I purchased my second set of these tires for the same 2007 Honda Civic Si and these are just as good as the first. Quiet on the dry and as grippy as I would expect on the dry too. Had a few inches of snow the weekend after I put them on and I was reminded of why I purchased them again, they are absolutely fantastic on the snow.<br><br>I'd highly recommend these tires.
Initial Review: 200 miles on tires

I ordered these tires a week ago. Installed them on a Saturday, drove 160 miles on dry roads and was amazed at how quiet they were, not noticably louder than my summer Yokohama performance tires. The next day I took them for a spirited drive up a twisty canyon road (still dry) and was even more amazed at how they cornered, much better stability than my old Blizzak tires. Then last night we recieved 4 inches of snow, the difference in handling in my car is amazing. The summer tires spun on everything, these don't seem to want to let go, I have to WANT VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist) to engage, otherwise they just grab on and go, even ABS won't engage, the tires don't slide.

These are the first tires I've put on my Civic Si, but they make it a whole new car in the snow, can't wait for some mountain driving to really put them through the paces. I'd definately choose them over the Blizzaks I had on my old car (Chevy Cobalt).

I put 4 on the car, the back end stays attached to the road just as I would expect, even through slick turns. Great tire. Highly recommended.
