Although General is not well known (or regarded) as a maker of performance rubber, I couldn't pass up the risk/reward ratio attached to this tire. It was just what I was looking for: a low profile, reasonably priced, performance tire that would give me decent wear; and it had the added bonus of being rated number one in its' category on theTireRack survey database. I caught a ton of flack from a number of yahoos in this very forum, but regardless I've been thrilled with the tires. I've put over 11K miles on the set this year and have little sign of wear. They handle as well as the car does and provide plenty of grip. They ride extremely well, are quiet and are quite competent in the rain. I know buying this tire was a minor leap of faith, but it was the right move. I've had numerous different performance tires, but I don't think this tire can be beat for the money. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend it.


Thanks for your participation
