Smooth ride Dry traction Wet traction Steering response

These tires are great in the dry and wet. Smooth and firm but not stiff over bumps, expansion joints and manhole covers. Running these with Koni FSDs and sport springs. Even the wife likes them. Not the quietest tire I've used but tolerable. Very pleased.

Put these on my BMW 335xi to replace the factory run-flats. Not only are these tires quieter than the factory ones, but they also have a lower impact when hitting bumps, ride better, and corner just as well if not better also. If you are looking for a tire that does everything well, these are fantastic and worth the price premium.

Tire Pros

Predictable characteristics Low slip angle Great feedback on wheel position Quiet

Tire Cons

Wet traction Noisy on expansion joints

These tires are a great compromise, not as great handling as the RE 070s that they replaced but then the ride is not as stiff. The steering feel is not as good and the handling not as fluid but they communicate grip levels well, as opposed to the RE 070s which held on until they let go - without much warning. We have the predecessor RE 960 AS on our FXT and they have been great tires, with excellent wear. I will likely put them on our S2K when the RE 050s wear out.

Tire Pros

Traction. Quiet ride. Smoothness

Tire Cons

None yet.

I was replacing the stock tires after only 8000 miles on them. The only good I can say about the stock tires was they were quiet. I was looking for a tire that was all season and had good traction in a diverse range of conditions. So far I have found it. I did a lot of reviews on tires and narrowed it down to this one. All I can say is WOW what a difference. The traction wet or dry is superior. I have better braking also. Very happy with my decision with this tire. Also like to thank Shakopee dicount tire and manager Mark, they really know how to take care of the customer.
