I am very disapointed in this tire. It caused my car to have a right pull that even when the alignment was put dead nuts to the manufacturer's spec was still there. When the winter tires were installed the pull went away. <br><br>The outside edges on these tires wear quicker than the inside. Right now I have 4/32 on the center and the inside and outside are worn bald and smooth. General has not support and blames the alignment. <br><br>These tires squeel horribly around tight curves even when taken at the posted speed.

Hand them on the car a week and so far I am happy. The ride is smoother than the previous tire and MUCH quieter. The trade off is a little more 'numb' feeling in the steering, but that is expected on a tire in this category. I was suprised to find that there was not a rim lip guard on the tire in this size as I thought it was standard on most tires these days. I do feel that the tire is a little narrower than a standard 225 tire, looks small on the car.
