Summary: Compared to the Continental DW's these tires are decent. But for the price and longevity they seem to be a fairly decent tire. Would I run them on a race track, of course not, but for a commuter tire they are a good choice.
Summary: Running this street tire on my motorcycle was a gamble that has paid off. This tire still looks brand new whereas I would have had to already buy another motorcycle tire. It handles a little different but it was not hard at all to get use to. NO it is not rounded on sides but I still lay my goldwing way down in the corners with no problems at all. It stands the bike right back just like a motorcycle tire would have.
Summary: Comparing with Continenetal SP3, FD2 feels very soft and comfort. Very low noise and steering is lighter. In curves not slippy but feel soft and bendable. I would not recommend to sporty driving but to town and highways feels comfoftable.
Summary: Can't argue with the quality for the price. They felt safe and performed well under normal use. I'm sure a branded tyre would be better but at my driving level I wouldn't notice any difference.
Summary: Not a sports tyre in any way, but having very acceptable handling and grip including wet. BUT â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦.. whilst the ride quality is good, the road noise is awful and shows a very marked difference between different road surfaces. Great with a newly surfaced road with fine tarmac, the drive is almost silent BUT here in Northlands that isnâ€™t 90% of the roads! In my Subaru Outback 3.0L the noise is terrible......
