So, now that I've driven a 1000 miles, the noise a lot worse! The tires make this woo-woo noise, that is very loud at lower speeds. Cornering grip is a lot worse than my last set and you will hear the tires sliding against the road. There is a downhill curve that I used to take at 40 mph in 3rd gear, that I now have to slow down for, grrr! Will not be purchasing again.

What a difference a new set of tires makes! My old worn set made my ride so rough I felt like I was driving a Porsche (minus the handling) lol. The new set makes me feel like I have my old comfortable, smooth, quiet Solara back again. Dry acceleration is great, no wheel spin on a hard start. Cornering is almost as good as the first set of OEM Michelin V rated tires. Not the quietest but, nothing to complain about. Have not had a chance to test west traction, very little rain in SoCal. I am a very aggressive driver, will do an update to rate treadwear, the tires I've tried so far Michelins and Sumitomo both ----ed, only got half of the suggested treadwear.
