Tire Pros

Half the price of the run flats. Better ride, less noise.

Tire Cons

Not a run flat but I have a 12 volt compressor & a plug kit in the back if needed.

I have had these tires 9 months & have about 7000 miles on them. They show no wear & still perform like new, couldn't be happier with them.Less than half price of the run flats & a much better tire. I have a 12 volt compressor & a plug kit in the back if I have a flat.

Tire Pros

Sticky, great at high speeds, corners like on rails

Tire Cons

not free

I beat the tar out of these on hard DD duties and autocross for 4 years, lots of neg camber on the fronts and rotated religiously along with re-balancing , this tire was amazing, best tire I ever ran, definitely buying again, cant beat the price. To the guy with the 'Vette who hated on them, maybe it isn't the tire...only 2600 miles, they aren't even conditioned!!! Got a nail the first week on the edge of the sidewall, plugged it in a parking lot and never had an issue, rain grip is amazing! Ran 275-40-18's on my Mustang.

Tire Pros

great looking tire, good for just crusing, price

Tire Cons

thin sidewall, cant drive car hard

after being warned about this tire from me brother who had them on a 1998 z28 i bougt them, ilike the tread and the traction the tire is a great tire for someone who just drives there car slow and not aggrssive, the tire had a very thin sidewall or something ,going into a cruve hard it feels like the rearend of the car is going to come out from under you. makes short s-curves scary at any higher speed in my 1998 cammed corvette
