Tire Pros

Excellent dry/wet traction. Very low raod noise for a low profile tire.

Tire Cons

Not as stiff of a sidewall as higher performance tires but work great for moderately aggressive cornering.

This was the first set of replacement tires for my GLI and I intended to go up one tire size on the width. The Dunlop Summer tires that were original equipment were awesome for about the first 15K miles but then developed issues with tread wear and sidewall bulges and being that I live in the Pacific Northwest I wanted more of an all-season tire. I did alot of research prior to buying these tires and was glad I did. They have excellent dry/wet traction and much lower road noise than the Dunlops at a much better price. Only downside is not quite as stiff of a sidewall which I notice on aggressive cornering but I can live with that. Great product!

Tire Pros

Handles much better in wet/snowy conditions comparing to previous tires I've owned.

Tire Cons

none

This tire has absolutely amazing grip, even after heavy rain or snow. Drove on these tires DAILY in New Jersey, throughout summer and winter, with temperature differences from 100 F to below freezing. Expected possibly better tread life, but these were mounted on a sports car with rather aggressive style of driving, so can't really complain about that. Owned Kumho tires previously and I gotta say the difference is like day and night.

Tire Pros

Smooth and quiet ride

Tire Cons

Pretty lame cornering attributes - I can literally feel the sidewall rolling on hard turn

I like the tires - very quiet ride and tread seems to be holding up well. We had some snow in Denver a couple of weeks ago and the tires did well on a small hill from a dead stop. My one complaint about the tires is that hard cornering is not this tire's favorite activity - not even close. I would like the tire more if sidewall construction was stronger/firmer.
