    Cons: Cost considering premature tread wear, tread wear, wet traction

    Summary: Tire size: 195/65 HR14's  (Could everyone include the tire size on the first line of the reviews?  Would help pick out which to read of the 65 out there.)  Also wondering if some issues are tire size-specific.This tire was recommended ... read more

    Jul 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good wet/dry road performance, quiet ride, price
    Cons: Dirty side walls

    Summary: I spent a lot of time reading tire reviews here. Nearly went crazy. My suggestion would be to disregard the top and bottom 10% of the reviews and look at the middle 80%. Some people have unrealistic expectations while others like anything new. Also buy a ... read more

    Pros: Good grip, good wear, great price.
    Cons: Could be a little grippier and firmer.

    Summary: Prior to purchasing these tires I read quite a few reviews. I had never purchased what I would call a "cheap" tire before, but at the time I was pretty sure I would be selling my car within the next six months and it didn't seem like a good idea to drop ... read more

    Pros: Great value for both small and large cars Solid handling, traction, lower noise than others
    Cons: Will not last very long with hard driving & cornering

    Summary: I've now had these tires on two vehicles: A 2002 VW Jetta Wagon (with sport suspension), and a 1994 BMW 740i. Generally speaking, these tires are a great value, and perform better than comparably priced tires. Results on the VW Jetta Wagon GLS: ... read more
