Tire Pros

have never had a problem with balance or loss of air.should have another 20/25K miles left.

Tire Cons

price/very expensive

These tires have surprised me,when I purchased the car new I figured based on mileage rating they would last maybe 15k.They handle & ride above expectations.Based on the miles I drive I will probably have to buy another set of tires do to age of the tires as opposed to tire wear.Have always done 5 wheel rotations every 3 to 5K.Old man now tires may out last me.Driving style very average.

These were the tires that were on the car when purchased new. They provided excellent traction for 65K miles. The tires are rotated every 5K miles to keep the wear even. I hope to get another 60K out of this set.

Tire Pros

Looks Good on Nissan 370z (they were the OEM tires when I bought the car new).

Tire Cons

Tread wears out quickly.

Front tires were bald at less than 13,000 miles. Frustrating, because I check tire pressure weekly and keep the tires inflated according to manufacturer specifications, don't speed and get alignments done. Will go with Michelin instead.

Tire Pros

Great traction and handling with acceptable noise

Tire Cons

wear is big only got 14,000 on a 2010 370z, and price.

The tail of two Z's same base model with sport package a 2010 and 2014, six speed manual, versus 7spd auto. The 2014 auto is doing better on tire mileage. Went with Michelin PSS on the 2010, I liked them but felt I lost some grip. By the halfway mark they were getting loud. Have looked at all the choices and will probably replace the rears with the RE050 and finish wearing out the set
