I love my set for 20k. Too many canyon days plus a track day and they were most of the way done.
July is out of their temp profile?

The set I ran were much louder than the General Grabber AT2 I had on my Forester. The sets I've driven on other cars were just as noisy.

2 of those sets had substantial cupping of the edges after ~10k or so, despite dead-nuts perfect alignments.

Just not a tire I would ever choose over other UHPS offerings.
