Summary: Excellent grip, much better in the wet than other tyres I have used on the same vehicle. Fuel consumption seems to have improved slightly and the tyres are fairly quiet. I think the ride might be a little harsher than it was.
Summary: This tire started very quiet and well-behaved. However, after less than 10,000 miles the noise was driving me crazy! Pirelli will not stand behind their tires. I had the discount tire shop try to negotiate a pro-rating, to no avail. Went to Michelins after the Pirellis and I will never go back.
