Default Nitto Motivo Tires Sampling

I was lucky enough to be chosen in the Nitto Motivo tire sampling. I have been one to run just summer tires in the summer and winter tires all winter , but after getting the chance to run these all season tires I have changed my mind. I am one to test the tire completely to push the tire as far as it can go before it breaks loose. I have to say these tires are just as good if not better than my Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110 High performance tires. The corner well, are alot quieter, and are quite sticky for being a all season tire. I cannot find a con to these tires yet but If I do I will definitely post it.

I would Like to thank nitto tires for letting me participate is such a cool idea.

I heard they were good. There are some comprehensive reviews online. I would get the 255 width for my STI...they should fit nicely on the OE wheels with minimal increase in diameter. Unfortunately I expect it to take 2 years to burn through these tires. Maybe I will get lucky in a few miles and run over a piece of metal so I can tell my wife I just HAVE to replace my tires...

I too was lucky enough to be chosen by Nitto to sample their Motivo tires. I filled out the form after seeing the sticky in the Warranty subforum here. The process was simple, and I got my tires next day. Had them mounted and have a couple things to say early on.

The tires are on my Legacy and I have them in 225/45R17. I had Kumho ASTs on there before the change, and straight off the bat, the Motivos are eerily quiet compared to the ASTs or anything I've had on the car. I thought the ASTs were quiet, coming from the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S, which were banshees on crack, but the Motivos are silent.

The Motivos are also sticky as hell. Much more than the ASTs that's for sure, and even more so than the Continental ExtremeContact DWS I've had on another car. They are amazingly sticky for being an all-season tire. I think it would even stickier than some of the more budget oriented dedicated summer tires. Going from the ASTs to the Motivos reminded me of going from Direzza DZ101s to Hankook RS-3's on my MR2, it is just a huge difference.

The treadwear rating at 560 is ridiculous, they should last a very long time, as I usually am able to drive other tires longer than their warranty mileages. And I love the fact that they are not directional and I can cross-rotate them across all four corners.

It'll be nice to see how they handle when the rain and snow comes.
