But I...

I don't think there is any hard evidence that any survey or CR is paid or bribed in some way to report the way they do.

Having said that I have been following them for years in two critical areas...

Pictures/handling

Sounds great. Do you have any pics of them installed.

Now I know they won't handle like the G2's or Michelin PSS, but around town how does it feel?

Got to say

I think we will all be shocked how a modded 2016 SS or 1LE will look.
Not quite fair to compare a stock LT to that beautifully modded Callaway.

Well how about some sensible questions.

Aside from the hoopla, is that really a word?

How much unsprung weight do they save?

Thanks
