    Tire Review Thread

    I looked around and I didn't see any type of official tire thread review since we all have opinions and experiences this seemed necessary. I recognize that this is somewhat subjective because no two people rate things the same although information is always needed when considering spending money. Remember to keep it clean and informational only.

    Please copy/paste what you see below so that everything can be uniform.

    Additional Notes: Overall considering that this was an entry level performance tire the quality of the tire was sub-par, usually resulting in broken sidewalls or vibration between 50-65. The treadwear was below average as well these tires were never used in auto-cross but they were driven fast routinely and replaced somewhat frequently almost to a fault. Terrifying in anything that even resembles snow, but not as bad as Toyo Proxies in the snow for comparison.

    Additional Notes: I've auto-crossed in these tires and at first I felt that the low grip was going to be a problem but as I've gotten used to this over my previous Bridgestone set these were never uncontrollable and fairly predictable when pushed hard. I find that the road noise and response was very quiet when compared to my previous set. This turned out to be an acceptable daily commuter tire.
