Additional Thoughts: These are the tires that came with my Integra. They had about 1000 miles on them when I got them. The sidewall is slightly too wide and they don't come in the correct 195/55/R15 for the meshies. They're definitely good 3-season tires, but I don't recommend these for anyone who experiences winter on a regular basis. They have very little grip in the snow and I had to keep a shovel in the car over the winter. If you don't have to deal with snow, they're great street tires. I routinely drive too fast around the sharply-curved highway ramps around here and never feel like I'm falling off the road. I wouldn't buy them again for a DD, but I'd gladly use them on a weekend car.

Review: Aggressive thread pattern, stiff sidewall, wide enough sidewall just enough to cover up my rim. I hate tires that are narrow or too thin to expose the edge of my rims. These tires decent, I've taken them to the Dragon and it handled the road well under hard driving. They are great under dry condition, but they are only OK under rain... Some 4 season tires probably do better than these Parada Spec-2 under heavy rain... Have been running them for about 2 years, mostly on dry or light rain condition, they are great. Just drive extra careful and SLOW DOWN with these when is pouring (i used to be able to go pretty fast with my old 4 seasons under rain, but can't with these)... These tires on my 16" MB Competition rims are actually slightly lighter than my GSR blade with some 4 season tires... Which is great IMO.

Additional Thoughts:

I picked these up in the beginning of the '10 summer. I daily drive my car (95 with an ls motor and gsr trans) with some suspension mods. These tires are very predictable when taking off ramps at excessively fast speeds; when their about to break traction you know; I honestly can't explain it any better. Wet traction is iffy with these, no you won't hydroplane going 90 down the highway or going 40 threw a pretty big puddle, but if you try and corner in the wet you'll get some under steer. I'd also like to add that these tires are easy to control while under steering, you just let off the gas and they regain traction right away.
My only complaint about these tires is that they squeal, alot... No other complains about road noise though very bearable.
These tires seem like a great set of beginner auto-x/daily driver tires; I would buy them again if the price was right, which it was at $72/tire, but i think i might upgrade to something a little more aggressive once these die; which doesn't seem to be to soon since the tread depth hasn't visibly changed since I got them; no camber wear which is whats great about these tires; their designed to wear evenly on lowered cars which is great for a daily that gets beat on every once and a while.

Bottom line: Great tires for a daily driver that gets its fair share of a beating. Very predictable and controllable. only negative is that they squeal around hard turns but that doesn't bother me

Additional Thoughts:

Dry traction is nothing impressive with the 912's but the tire wont try to kill you in the dry. In the wet they are garbage. If the temperature is below 40 and there is anything but dry pavement be prepared for significant loss of grip.

Snow? Consider yourself stuck. I'd honestly rather have my old yokohama AVS-ES1000's in snow if that gives you any indication of how horrible these "all season" tires are.

I will never buy another "all season" falken tire again due to my experiences with these.

Additional Thoughts: Before these I had Bridgestone Potenza G 009 and wow what a difference. For one the G009s were on stock steel wheels yet the DWS has a smoother/softer ride. These tires will give you confidence in all weather conditions. You can take these tires to the limit.... or pass the limit and still have significant control over your car. I think that is the reason why they are considered best in class. The cons are that these tires are still trumped by dedicated summer/track tires. But for a spirited driver looking for all season performance these tires are a cut above the rest.

The Nitto Neo-Gen's have been reviewed by several folks here so I won't do a full review but I would like to say a few things about them. Some people like the way the sidewall makes them look like a slick, I hate it. It makes me think my tires are bald after owning them for 8 weeks. Secondly, they don't take to armor all well at ALL. They are faded, and ugly, almost just a few days after I've cleaned and treated them. They take a lot of upkeep and I don't plan on purchasing them again because of this.

Additional Thoughts: If I can find these again when it comes time to replace I would buy in a heart beat. If not. My GF has the new Michelin X-Ice Xi2 winter tires and they are softer than the alpin but work just as good. It is just 15'' tires are getting scarce.

The interesting part about these tires is this is the third season they are in use. Looks like I could get 2-3 more seasons out of it. So 5-6 years of tire life. Any longer and I would worry about the tire integrity. I will store the tires with some sort of tire prevention coating.

These are snow tires, soft tires make a nice comfy ride but cornering and steering response is slow. We had a bad snow storm here a week ago. The only two cars to make it down our street was my fathers 4wd Hybrid escape with some fantastic Goodyear Fortera's and my Integra with these tires.

I am lowered. So until I got to even snow I was a plow. What is nice is the car is light and these tires are wide enough to ride on top of the snow. My LSD did its part too.

This is the first time I've ever driven with snow tires. I will NEVER again go a winter without them. My GF was so impressed with what I could drive in she went out and bought the X-Ice Xi2's for her little civic.

Absolutely amazing tire for dry conditions. Hitting a small patch of water straight on is no problem, cornering after/thru this puddle can get hairy at times. These are a beast around town and on the strip/track (I would assume). They beg and plead for you to push them to their limits and will suprise you will how much grip they will give. I always push mine on the on-ramps and they surprise me everytime. Most often, you will back down before this tire will.
That being said, do NOT expect good tire life and do not expect to be able to baby these things for more than 6 months. I am in my fourth month with these and I have gone down to about 3/32nds (8/32nds new). I do alot of highway driving and this is not the tire for me. Granted I have put close to 10k on these, I am about to swap these out and get a tire with a longer life span because these are not it.

Additional Thoughts:

I have never had summer tires before. Before this tire it was Bridgestone Potenza 960's for my 94 LS. I pretty much had given up on Bridgestone tires based on that pathetic tire. I was very leery about these Potenza's because of this.

I only purchased them based on my experience with my dad's RX-8 stock Potenza RE50's. I am glad that I did. The amount of grip that these tires can achieve is staggering. Especially with a tuned suspension and LSD. I sometimes if I lift off the throttle too much in a turn can develop oversteer. This tire handles lively street driving extremely well. I have no idea about a dedicated circuit track driving yet. I do know the first few laps will be fantastic. The hotter the temp gets the more traction I seem to get.

On that note. I had a week of 30-40F temperatures and the traction is about half. Normal driving is not affected but I wouldn't push it hard on those on ramps.

Tread life seems very good for a summer tire. No measurable tread depth loss yet. I only have about 6000 miles on them. Most of those miles is 70 MPH cruising. If the treadlife lasts 30k + i will buy these tires again.

The one thing I can fault on the tire, as with all summer tires, more wet grip. It is not a problem with normal driving, but watch how far you push it in the rain.

As with my Winter tire review. Now that I have dedicated Winter and Summer tires, I will never go back to "all-seasons." The driving experience is much better with the correct tires mounted.

A small update on the Nitto NeoGens. After several months of owning them, I finally rotated the tires to find TERRIBLE camber wear. These tires are specifically marketed to cars with high degrees of negative camber. I'm running -1 in the rear and -2.2/2.5 in the front (no camber kit) and the tires are nearly toast. Completely bald on the inner wall. I'll update with photos later but these tires are just plain a bad choice. I plan on going directly back to s-drives when I get new wheels.

Also, I've found the time to test the limits of these tires, and they're awful. After only 6 months of wear they show serious signs of being very bad under heavy stress, snapping loose much easier than they did at first, and being pretty unpredictable under most high-speed conditions.

i am mid-season with the bf-goodrich g-force's that BlownGsR1001 reviewed. will be including video links/hopefully g-force maps from my blackberry's dynostorm app. to properly gauge how well they actually grip dealing with elements.

I second this. I had NeoGens because they were DIRT cheap. Totally not worth it.

stupid easy to predict tire that seems to have slightly less overall warm grip than the kumho xs. on the other hand this tire has a better steering response and is easier to control at the limit. wet traction is really good for an extreme tire. overall i don't LOVE the tire but it's not a bad choice. my only drip is pulling fewer G's than the XS and behaving more like a street tire with it's mild break away....not that the last part is really a bad thing for a street car. it just feels so, so, novice. you don't even have to be precision to keep the car where you want it going. this would be an EXCELLENT learner track tire.

on another note. treadwear is the best of any extreme tire i have driven. i have 7k miles on this set and there is hardly any wear. 15-20k miles could be in the cards which really make them a value over something like the fast wearing 615k

Additional Thoughts:

When I started looking for a tire to replace my three aging and one dead Toyo Proxes 4's, Tire Rack had done a recent review of Ultra High Performance All-Season tires, which included the General G-Max AS-03, Hankook Ventus ES H105, Yokohama AVID ENVigor, and the Kumho Ecsta 4X. After driving around on my Proxes 4's forever, I was determined to get the best tire I could for driving in any weather condition, since Illinois weather changes all the time, any time.

The test TireRack performed resulted in the 4X claiming first place, with comments like:

In dry conditions, the Kumho Ecsta 4X easily drove away from the rest of the group, feeling more like a summer than an all-season tire, with quick steering response and excellent traction.
They had tested the tires in dry and wet conditions, but not in winter. I purchased these tires in early November, somehow making my Star Specs live until then. It seemed winter snow and cold temperatures would be the first test for these tires.

At $84 a tire, they looked like an excellent bargain. I kept wondering what the catch was, what might be their Achilles heel. If anything, it might be the somewhat soft sidewall. The 4X is the replacement for the Kumho ASX which was, in some circumstances, known to literally roll off of wheels because of the soft sidewalls. I knew I was basically one of the first customers to test a somewhat unknown products, but I decided to bite the bullet and give them a shot.

The result? I couldn't be happier with them. In the 4000 miles I've put on them, they haven't failed me once. In winter, the stood up to harsh cold, snow, and slush. At times where I had to go relatively slow with my Proxes 4's in the snow, the 4X's soldiered on, unhindered. There was one point where I slid the car through a turn in complete control, and came out of it just fine. We had some oddly sticky slush at one point around here, so I took the car to an abandoned lot for a drive, doing a figure eight course around a pair of light poles. The tires responded well, holding a surprising amount of grip.

As winter turned into spring, warmer weather came, and rain with it. In the dry and wet, these tires performed above and beyond what I thought they would, behaving just as TireRack desribed. At one point in April, I hit a large puddle of standing water at about 50 MPH, which would normally mean hydroplaning into the nearest solid object. Not this time. The car went straight on, and didn't even leave the lane. I was stunned at this.

Whenever conditions are dry, I tend to be a very spirited driver, taking turns as fast as the tires, or the speed limit, can take. While understeer will eventually be noticed, especially on cars like ours, these tires do indeed perform similar to a summer tire.

These tires come with a 60,000 mile warranty, and from what I've seen in the six months I've owned them, I'm looking forward to every mile I can get out of them.

Additional Thoughts:

I originally purchased these tires in May of last year after I killed one of my Proxes 4's. The idea was to buy these in time for Dragon, then really give them a workout there. However, due to engine trouble, my car was unable to make it last year. So, I had to settle for spirited driving all through the summer and fall.

I was originally looking at the RE-11's, but at $150 a tires, I just wasn't ready to commit so much money. The Z1, at $115 a tire, sounded like a great tire for a somewhat better price. I had heard of people trying to drift with these tires, only to be unable to break the car loose in order to do so. I also considered the Kumho XS at an even cheaper price somewhere under $100, but I had heard they don't fare so well in the wet, so I decided to go for the Z1's.

I had never driven on a summer tire before, so I was astounded at how well these tires gripped the road and turned through corners. It was like a dream, taking corners at speeds I had never dared. I have never once heard these tires make any noise while going through a corner under stress either.

In the wet, I had no problems either. Cornering and braking was fine, and I ran into no problems whatsoever.

I would definitely recommend this tire if you're looking for something cheaper than RE-11's, but a little more dailyable than the XS. These seem to be a very excellent medium.

Anyone know anything about the new Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R's? I'm looking for 205/45/16's and I was gonna go for RE-11's, but they seem to have finally updated their "Extreme Summer Performance" tire. Any thoughts? http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Bridgestone&tireModel=Potenza+RE-71R&partnum=045WR6RE71RXL&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes
I'd probably wait after the initial reviews come out, some stuff I've read mentioned they are a step up to the RE-11A.
http://www.s2ki.com/s2000/topic/1108750-new-bridgestones-re-71r/
It looks like they'll come out March 2nd.

I ran the RE-11A, and just recently replaced them. Enjoyed the overall grip they offered, however I feel they would have worn better if I had run a 15x7 or 15x8 rather than pinching them on a 15x6. Heavy use of autox averaging one to two a month, I got around 4000 miles out of them. But the RE-11As were great in the rain.

I downsized to the Dunlop ZII Star Spec in 195/55/15 to run on my stock wheels. Will find out after this weekend how they perform.
