Follow-Up Review: 35,000 miles on tires
January 10, 2012
Update to previous. After having driven approx 35,000 miles on the tires, they're still in very good shape (I rotate approx every 7K-9K miles). This is my 2nd winter on them, though we've had limited snow so far. Last winter, when they had only 7-8K miles, they were flawless. I felt very confident in deep snow, ice, slush, etc. This year, they're still very good, but not quite as they were last year. However, I drive a lot of miles and expected that after 35K they wouldn't quite be as they had when new. I suspect I'll easily get through the Michigan winter a second time, then spring, and hopefully summer, so that I can buy another set in time for my 3rd winter with my G35x. By the time I replace the tires, I hope to have gotten 75K miles on them and two winters. Not bad.
Initial Review: 500 miles on tires
August 02, 2010

Only have about 500 miles on these, but I like to do an early and then an updated review. The tires are much quieter than the OEMs, and significantly more comfortable (i.e. smooth, in addition to quiet). They're quite responsive. So much so, that it felt a little wild when I first got on the highway with them. I didn't realize how much I was fighting my previous set of tires, and the car switches lanes quickly now. I'm used to it now, and prefer it, but it did take getting used to. Hardly a flaw. Looking forward to getting into some deep snow during the Michigan/Indiana winters I drive through regularly. I'll update then. I also drive about 30,000 miles per year so I should have some good feedback on treadlife by next summer.
