Tire Pros

Quiet and comfortable but still handles like a high performance tire. Acceptable wet and winter performance.

Tire Cons

Tread Life

Very good all around performance for the price of the tire. This is our third set in the family if you include the previous ASX. At roughly 1/2 the price of a similarly rated Michelin it's a good choice when you don't want to spend a lot of money for a high performance tire. Good choice for an older car or one that sees low mileage each year. Previous experience with the ASX (whcih these replaced) was similar in the performance category but the tread life on the ASX is not that great and maybe 1/2 the life of the Michelin. Yet to see how the 4x holds up over time but on this car it could take 5-6 years to accumulate significant mileage since this is the extra vehicle in the family.

Tire Pros

Very good performance tire for the price.

Tire Cons

Some performance left on the table next to the best of the more expensive alternatives but you get 90% the performance for 60% the money.

Overall these tires are very good. For the money, I would get them again but by the time I need new tires, I am sure there will be something else I will want to try. Very quiet, decent cornering performance at the limit, no hydro issues.... Overall they are very close to the Conti DWS I replaced. I have not had them in the snow yet.

Tire Pros

Very nice ride with very little road noise. Good dry performance with great wet traction. An excellent value

Tire Cons

None. So far so good.

My girlfriend and I are very happy with these tires on the car. They are a great fit on the RSX and ride very smooth but have a good road feel. I would recommend these tires to anyone who wants a good all season tire without breaking the bank. Very happy overall.

Tire Pros

Great on dry and in rain. Very quiet tire

Tire Cons

Next to zero traction in sleet snow and freezing rain

Got stuck in an inch of snow today. Continental d w s tires took me 312 inches of snow no problem last year buy those instead. Goodyear Ls tires had better traction in the snow
