I had these tires installed yesterday and let me tell you. HUGE difference. Of course you'd expect that going from a geolander to a very nice summer tire. It is on a completely stock forester and the difference is just insane. So much more grip that it is unbelievable. On off ramps(25mph ones) the old tires would howl around 40-45 these ones didnt make a noise until about 55+ and even then they weren't pushing or anything. So far i only have about 200miles on them(lol, from yesterday at 4:00). So nothing about durability yet, but i'll try to keep updating. I would give these tires a very high rating but since i've never really driven anything else with tires liket hese i can.

so, let me get this straight ... you put on brand new summer performance tires in November and you live in Indiana .... what are you going to do when it snows ...

pretty decent choice in tires though ....

lol...the miracles of two sets of tires...might as well have fun until the snow hits...plus...even if i didnt have snow tires, these would be much better in the snow than my geolanders. Especially since my dad was driving the car and when i got it the first thing i did was tires...and when you say when you reach the wear bars, i had almost worn them AWAY!...
