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

quiet

Tire Cons

scary on ice with my civic.

When new these tires handled well, provided quiet ride and performed well in light snow. However, after the first 15k miles these were downright scary on ice. The car felt extremely unstable and would shift from side to side. This only happened on icy roads snow was not a problem. Also, one of the tires developed a bubble in the side wall. Would not buy these tires again.

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.
