YAY, my favorite tires!!! Oddly enough one of my friends said that they are awful and handle terrible and such...he said they are atrocious on snow and such...so report back and tell how they do on different types of road conditions.

SWWEEET TIRES MAN!!! GOOD CHOICE!

I also heard they aren't that good in snow, but I don't care since I have winter tires to use in...you guessed it WINTER, lol.

accroding to Tire Rack they are the #1 tire in the All Season category, and there is some tough competition....i will report back, going to be taking a 700 mile trip in the next few weeks or so.....

and as for the snow....i dont have any of that or plan to encounter any soon so i have no worries about them in the white stuff

Looks good. It pissed me right off when they put the wheel weight on the outside.

Sweet tires.....Ive been thinking on putting the stocks back on until I can get the rims fixed....the vibration sucks!! But I think I know what I'd get for new tires for my stocks!!! I'll prolly still look around a bit though..$108ea..that'* what I paid for my "18'*. I won't ever buy yoks again....not that they didn't perform well but wore quickly!!
