I’ve never bought new tires before. Every car I’ve had has either had decent tires, or I’ve bought wheels with decent tires already on them. But these are just wonderful. I thought the old tires the Subaru came on were decent, and I thought my used Michelin X-Ices were actually quite good. Which, as a winter tire, I think they are. But these new ones are great. I actually have steering feel now, they’re much more comfortable than the ones before, and there’s less road noise. Oh yeah they’re Cooper Zeon RS3-G1s. Once I’ve had them more than a few days, maybe I’ll write more thoughts about them. All I’ve got so far is more than good enough dry and wet traction, good steering feel, and low road noise.
