Tire Pros

The price was very low in comparison to other brands.

Tire Cons

They squeal quite a bit around corners so my confidence is low. these tires make me hesitant to drive like I am accustomed.

If I had the cash to buy better tires when I bought these, knowing what I know now, I would not have purchased them. This is not to say they are bad tires for everyone but in a performance vehicle with an aggressive driver these are not appropriate.

Tire Pros

Dry Weather Traction Price

Tire Cons

Icy/Snowy Traction

This is a good tire for the money. Great for carving through the canyons at a brisk pace and quiet enough for the highway. Predictable and controllable at its limits. Good in rainy conditions. Not a tire for any icy or snowy conditions. Traction and stopping distances become alarmingly compromised. Good tire for west coast conditions, but not recommended for inclement weather areas. Just replaced with a set of Conti Extreme Contact DWS since, I’m now living in Central Ohio. So far, dry traction exceeds AST’s and ice/snow traction 100% better. Just wanted to thank you guys for giving me a credit on my AST's when I purchased the Conti's!
