Summary: Lincoln MKZ Haven't had them long enough to rate treadware or noise . Have replaced three tire in the first 1500 miles. The zero must be for zero tolerance. You can hit a pebble on the road without ripping a hole in the side wall of the tire. Not the tires to have in Michigan in the winter. I have no confidence in the safety of these tires, and would definately not purchase another set.
Summary: Good tire, dry handling and very hard cornering reacted well. Good feedback to the wheel. A lote of squeal in hard corners. Suicide in snow! Front two wore quite quicker due to bad camber. Would buy again for summer tire only.
Summary: All good tyres. A comfortable ride is something I gave up when I purchased this car so tyres become tyres. Excellent grip, some imbecile put budget tyres on before I purchased the car, would never go back after I slipped on these bad boyz!...On a side note, these tyres let off a lovely fragrance when pushed. Get out your car while they're still smouldering, take a deep breath and you'll be glad you're breathing premium!
Cons: noticeable difference in wear characteristics and therefore lifetime between front an drear tyres. I.e. fron last ~17000 miles, rear last ~24000 miles - but this is probably due to car's power steering and that it is fwd
Summary: Very good tire. Excellent grip, good water displacement. Despite the grip they lasted 35000km about 27000miles. That is down to 1mm thread left. And they have worn on me van perfectly. Nice and level. But that is mostly do to tracking of your car. It's all in the way you drive them. I have them under a 130bhp T5 van. Noise is good, compared to a real van tire. But I have had more silent tires on it. Overall good tire: would buy again.
