Initial Review: 14,000 miles on tires
Pretty hard on tires here. Had the second worst winter in 25 years this past winter. Could be the car's power or the tire but I had almost NO traction in any snow conditions. I respond to the firehouse when weather is at it's worst, and I will never buy these again. never really pushed the car in wet traction but they almost always spin with even alittle bit of acceleration. Dry traction is average. tire squeal where the factory pirellis never did, and poor braking power with these tires. I have slotted/dimpled rotors and hawk pads and braking still stinks.
Next time I will spend a few dollars more for a better tire even though price wasnt an issue.
