Tire Cons

Tread life very disappointing, wore out quickly

Tires performed well in both wet and dry conditions. Handling and cornering were quite good. The major draw back to these tires is the excessive tread ware. They are a very soft compound which is good for traction but resulted in a useful tread life of only 24,000 miles of normal city/highway driving.

I drove on my originals for about 50K miles so when I put the new ones ... I could tell ... big difference.
