Ron said:One of the unexpected bennies that came along with the great buy I got on my left over '05 ($16K off the sticker) was free "tires for life". I hadn't heard about it until we were finishing the "deal" and the salesman mentioned it. As long as I get 25k miles on a set they will replace them free with OEM Goodyears.
Can it get any better? :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs
Tires are optimized for their intended use. High performance doesn't equate to long life. Dry grip doesn't equate to wet grip. A tire can not be good at all things.Wildcat69 said:
Sort of like Drano, Oop's I mean Zanio. After switching the Goodyears for ToYo's on my Cobra Mustang, it was like going from Hell to Heaven. I firmly believe that ToYo makes the best "all around" tire.Subdriver said:Tires are optimized for their intended use. High performance doesn't equate to long life.

I think it is a little unfair to say the OE tires are not good and then compare them to a tire like the KDW2 which is a tire in a different performance category altogether. The Goodyear Eagle RS-A is a High Performance All-season tire. The KDW2 is an Ultra High Performance Summer tire. I could just as easily say the KDW2 wears out too fast or doesn't work well in the snow. We would both be right. So the question really comes down to what is important to you?
The KDW2 ranks very highly in the Tirerack ratings for Ultra High Performance Summer tires. But, if max dry performance is your thing, the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 is the highest ranking tire in the Tirerack survey in the Max Performance Summer category. :cheers
