Just an observation
There are probably just as many diffrent needs for types of tires as there are drivers. Just because a tire works well for me dosen't mean it will work well for you under different conditions. Road conditions, speed, weight, weather and many other factors all make a difference in how a tire will wear, ride, sound, look, grip the road, and what ever. We all have different expectations of what we want a tire to do for us. I hope you all take that into account when you buy your next set of tires.
Sometimes with luck and good management you get what you pay for.
