#2) What is your geographic location: Northern NJ
#3) What types of driving events if any (Track, AutoX, Commute
, etc): Plain 'ol spirited driving
#4) Percent of highway vs. city driving: 70% highway, 30% city
#5) Tires used previously: Stock RE-92's
#6) Your review and personal comments (Dry, wet, and snow, if applicable. Also, please compare to other tires used): I found these tires to be a significant improvement over stock in terms of wet performance. They give the car a much more neutral feel, instead of the understeer sensation that I felt with the stock tires. I haven't tested them out in the snow yet, but I'm expecting great things.
Noise: These tires are significantly noisier than stock. I would assume this means that there is a stiffer sidewall, but I need this in NJ with our crap roads and whatnot.
