Default Nokian zLine A/S

Would anyone have reviews of the new Nokian zLine A/S?

They've put themselves in the UHP A/S category, and since my Conti DWSs are up for a change, I would consider the Nokians against the DWS06.

I think they are too new for any meaningful reviews.

I bit the hook, and got them. Initial impressions after ~ 2000 km. Keep in mind I come from 2 seasons of Conti DWSs (and Conti Extreme Contact before).

Initial impressions
- More quiet than the DWS. This was welcome, since on long hwy drives it was one of my requirements
- Less mushy than the DWS. I run them 34/33, and they're noticeably firmer on turns than the DWS, which required a few psi more to handle in the same manner. Basically, a firmer side-wall.
- Excellent, and progressive grip. Slam-braked them on dry, had to do the same in a torrential rain, and pushed a few curves to the limit. It's not lateral g-force data, but the impressions are positive
- They're..comfortable. Something in them absorbs little vibrations. That could be a false impression though, going from 3/32 tyres to full thread depth ones.

In conclusion, a new and interesting add-on to the UHP 4 season group. Also, cheaper than the DWS.

Using "cheaper" to describe tire from Nokian is not used very often.
I like their summer zLines.
