Tire Pros

quiet good dry performance acceptable all season performance good tread wear

Tire Cons

none so far

Although I haven't put all that many miles on them in the time I have had them, they are performing well. They have good traction in the dry, acceptable traction in wet and snow/ice conditions. They will hydroplane when encountering large puddles but it is controllable. They seem to run quiet so far and tread wear is good for the mileage. I didn't know what to expect from this brand but based on the use so far they have been a very good choice for my vehicle and I would definitely purchase them again.

Tire Pros

Best all around tire I've ever owned including Michelins!

Tire Cons

Wish I'd known about them a long time ago!

These tires hug the curves like glue, yet have a soft comfortable ride and the least road noise I've ever had in a Miata..If Discount tire hadn't recommended them I probably wouldn't have purchased them...Now I put a set on my wife's Civic and she's happy as well! Thanks Discount Tire!!!!

Tire Pros

decent speed rating and tread pattern. Cheap (used to be)

Tire Cons

durability tread life

tire definitely does not last 45,000 miles. more like 20,000. They used to be cheap ($50/tire) now at almost $80 I will be purchasing a different brand, most likely falken.

Tire Pros

Good grip in dry condition

Tire Cons

Poor durability

Been using these tires for over 11 years now, good decent grip in dry conditions, so-so in wet conditions, but snow, it's a bad horror movie. What's really bad is the durability of these tires, I tend to have to get replacement every 2 years or so, and I don't drive like a street ricer maniac. Make sure you take a photo of your odometer when you have these tires installed cause discounttiredirect.com will need some kind of proof it's under the 45,000 mile warranty. If not, you would like me, SOL! As the price keeps going up, I will not be buying these tires again. It's time to shop for new tires.

Tire Pros

Tire Cons

Other reviews bashed these tires for traction and noise on a Miata. If you properly inflate these tires to 28 psi they perform very well, and are a bargain at the price. Ask the Miata experts.
