Initial Review: 27,000 miles on tires
February 17, 2012

02-17-12: 1992 Toyota Camry - 5 speed manual. Approximately 104,000 miles total on vehicle. San Antonio, Texas. Summers can reach 110°. Winters can be anything from 75° / sunny to 15° / freezing rain or light snow. Lots of curves and hills in town. I push this 4 cylinder pretty hard. Several cross-country road trips, including in blinding, freezing rain. Strong, dependable traction. Never seems to slip in wet weather. Noticeable road noise. Wide, deep treads pick up bigger pebbles. I don't care. Almost 30K miles - no noticeable wear. I've been buying tires since 1962. Best tires I have ever had. Made in Mexico made me wary at first, but misgivings all gone. Sidewall instructions say you can pump the tires up to 51 PSI. I like a hard, firm ride. I run them at 45 psi. They don't leak air very much. Add air maybe every 6 months and then only about 4 or 5 lbs. I don't work for General Tire. Buy these tires! They are the best.
