Pros
Dry grip
Cons
Noise
Noisy Tires
Best Uses
Comment:
My daily use of these tire, is average except for once or twice per week I take my van on the highway. I have had my regular tire rotations, but somehow my ride has become so bumpy at highway speeds. My van has been checked, tires have been re-balanced, but my ride has deteriorated. The tires themselves look great, but they are noisy and my van now rides like a massaging chair between 65 mph and 75 mph.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
