Tire Pros

Good handling

Tire Cons

unbearably noisy after 13,000 miles, will throw them away

after 13,000 miles on the tires i feel like i am riding a noisy train on railways and my car has only 26,000 miles and 13,000 miles on those tires. Tires are cupping although pressure, alignment and shocks are good and checked regularly. Although i purchased road hazard, but according to discount tires direct the tires are still usable and they cant do anything about it, i will throw the tires and get a decent set of tires from a reputable retailer with decent customer service.

Tire Pros

Good value for all-around, low-profile tire.

Tire Cons

Snow traction not as good as the replaced exclaim uhp.

I'm in Colorado and while having these tires I've experienced everything from warm, 60+ degree days to -10 degrees days. Some dry, some wet, some snow and some ice. I tend not to provide reviews too early in the life of a new product, however, with my recent experience and no other reviews posted yet, I thought I'd provide a little feedback. Overall, it's a good tire. The dry traction and handling has been good. I haven't tested the limits yet with any heavy performance driving, but on a daily basis, they've performed well. The ride is quiet and smooth and they seem to have been balanced well. As a little background, I have placed the now discontinued General Exclaim UHP tires on six other vehicles and have always had great all-around, year-round performance. I was told that these are supposed to be the replacement for that line. Unfortunately, the one draw-back that I have found is that the snow performance of these tires is average at best. Interestingly the UHP weren't marketed as an all-season tire, but were stamped as such and did perform quite well in the snow. The AS-03 is marketed and marked as such but just don't provide the same level of traction. Again, the tire is a decent value, but if you're needing something with a little better grip in the winter, you may choose another. If it's mostly dry and maybe a little wet conditions they do perform well.
