Tire Pros

Tires are a quiet ride and they have excellent grip even during flash flooding in CA.

Tire Cons

Slightly expensive and gas mileage isn't great with them.

Overall these are the best tires I have found. They are not cheap but they do an amazing job of reducing road noise and providing exceptional handling. During our flash floods in CA they grip the road with no issues. On the highway they ride quiet and smooth.

Tire Pros

Awesome cornering grip.

Tire Cons

Summer tires only.

Great tires that will outperform the capabilities of most cars. Just be ready to buy additional winter tires if you live in states that experience adverse winter conditions.

Tire Pros

Very good tire for a reasonable price

Tire Cons

There are better tires out there

After having been riding on Michelin Pilots for the last decade, I decided to give these tire a try since Michelin no longer made a summer only Pilot tire in my size. I have been pleasantly surprised. Although these tires are about about half the cost of my normal brand, they deliver 85-95% of the driving experience. Not worth going back to an expensive Michelin if they ever make them in my size. They seem to wear better as well.

Tire Pros

Great handling.

Tire Cons

Not LRR tire and reduces range on electric vehicles due to improved traction.

Great tires in non-snow weather locations. However, since I have an electric vehicle, my range was reduced significantly due to the improved grip/traction.

Tire Pros

good riding and fairly quiet tires.

Tire Cons

sidewalls are not quite as stiff as previous tires so cornering is not as precise.

Great tires at a low price. Have been excellent in rain conditions.

Tire Pros

Great handling, generates high cornering loads

Tire Cons

shorter life that others

My fourth set. A nice compromise, with a bias toward handling over tread life.
