So, I like reading reviews of tires that are actually on the same vehicle I'm driving before I dive in to purchasing something as expensive at tires.
I'll be checking in every-so-often to update how these lovely beasts are wearing on my truck. I drive what's below in my sig. I bought the tires with about 124,000 on the odometer.
Got them through Discount Tire. They beat the competitors price.
So far, here's my analysis:
Day 1: They look fantastic. Meaty. They look like a tire you'd stop and admire on someone else's vehicle and think, "what kind are those?"
The mechanics at the shop didn't air up the tires as much as I'd probably put in myself. When I checked, I think they put them all at 32 PSI.
They felt a little spongy around corners, and I'd notice my truck seemed to lean quite a bit through the turn. That makes me uncomfortable, so I decided to put more air in them.
I now have them set at 40 PSI (the sidewall says max is 44). They are a lot firmer around corners. The ride is a lot firmer as well. You will definitely notice more bumps in the road. After driving around and letting the air in the tires heat up (drove about 2 hours on the highway), I checked the pressure again. They bumped up to about 42 PSI each.
I'm debating on dropping them to 38 PSI (cold). I think it'd be a nice in between.
The tires have a nice "whir" sound at slow speeds. They're not loud at all.
I have about 1,000 miles on them now, and they show no signs of wear as of yet. Only other update besides mileage is that they have gotten even quieter with the miles. Still set at 40 PSI.
(Can't update you on any snow/ice/rain handling because Oklahoma is having a horribly warm and dry season so far. As far as dry handling, I can't even get them to chirp unless I'm hauling *** around a corner)
