Tire Pros

Fantastic traction in most conditions Treadlife, treadlife, treadlife!!

Tire Cons

None come to mind; great tire start to finish

Replaced my stock Goodyears with these tires years ago, mostly because my C5 is a daily driver and the stock GYs were only good for about 10-12K. The Nittos advertised a much higher treadlife and I was NOT disappointed! I put these tires through the paces very often, and I could not believe how long they lasted while continuing to provide fantastic traction in both dry and wet conditions. I also drove for 4 winters in Colorado with these tires, and while they are clearly not designed for winter driving they are adequate if you know how to drive a rear wheel drive vehicle in light snow/ice. Anything heavier, and the car can't drive due to clearance issues anyway. Again, though, the dry traction of these tires is unbelievable; all other conditions and they will work just fine with some common sense and experience in driving. I will definitely buy these tires again.

Tires often feel shakey. Tire pressure changes often with the weather change. They are louder than I anticipated. Next time I'll get Michelin. It's worth the extra money.

Tire Pros

confidence inspiring, sure footed, great tread life and quiet riding

Tire Cons

not a deep snow tire

A great highway/city driving tire. Traction in snow isn't the best but to me, as good as all season tires. I have a good confidence level when cornering or sudden stops. After 30,000 miles I still have plenty of tread. I consider myself an aggressive driver and would definitely recommended these tires as an upgrade to your standard recommended tires!
