I had just over 15K on them at that point. They're getting loud and developing a whump-whump noise. Not sure how much longer I can tolerate it.
I'm getting that noise pretty bad already and I'm only at about 9500 miles.
I'm questioning whether I should get higher quality tires before winter time. I really don't want to waste the tire life, but if they're as bad as everyone says they are in the winter, that concerns me.
Are you guys losing much fuel efficiency when you go to a tire with more rolling resistance?
