Any thoughts on these tires? Looking to purchase some but not sure if these are good tires to have?
Performance wise?
Wet Handling? Or Grip wise on the road?

I’m getting some 285s and 315s
What would you recommend on tires?

I just put these on my car. Very pleased so far. 275's on the fronts and 315's on the rear.

Great tire with good reviews for the price. Once my Invos wear out, I'll be getting some.

I just put these on my car when I got new rims two weeks ago. 275s on 9" in the front, 305s on 10" in the rear. I've been happy with them thus far. Have not had experience yet in wet conditions, but they ride similar to the stock PZeros, seem to have about the same road noise level - but what I really like about them is the sidewall and tread design look of the tire.

The price is certainly nice.

The only negative that I see on the tire is they are directional, so you can't rotate them.

I put 285s all the way around on 10s and 11s got a slight shake from 47-60'ish think it's just a balance issue. Need to find the time to take it up to discount and have them checked.

I have them for my summer driver. They work extremely well, especially in the wet.
Do Not track these tires. Not the right application.

Spend a little more and get Michelin PSS’s. Everyone spends tons of money on all types of mods, but, get thrifty when it comes to one of the most important mods on the car. 30k mileage warranty, good in wet conditions, nice ride with low noise levels and handle great.
285-35-20’s all around.

Lots of folks seem to love these tires. I'm due for new shoes soon but am probably going with the Motivos so I can rotate side to side and get longer life out of them.

I have these tires on my car now (285 up front and 305’s in the rear) I still can’t hook from dig. It’s definitely way better than the Parelli’s, and Goodyears I’ve had previously. They have no trouble in the rain unlike the Goodyear eagles. I’m going to get R888’s next and hopefully fit some 315’s in the rear.

Took the car back to Discount Tire for a rebalance and come to find out my new wheels are bent. Passenger side is .030ths TIR and the drivers is .017ths TIR. Hopefully I'll be taken care of.

Cheap - I mean inexpensive

Yesterday I ordered 2 - 315s from Walmart online, $140 each. Discount Tire wanted double that.
