edmundu Posted April 28, 2005 Share Posted April 28, 2005 Last Saturday, I had a set of these put on and after pulling away from the shop, I had a strange feeling.... They felt a little squirmy, Ok, I figured it's because they are new. I give them a few days and about 300 miles, and while the initial squirminess has lessened, in it's place I have noticed noticeable tire whine/humming at speed. Kind of almost sounds like being on an airplane, although more muted. But obvious nonetheless. They do appear to stick better than the re92's, and they seem softer on bumps, but since my commute is 90 miles a day, any minor noise is very tiring! Suffice it to say, I am NOT impressed with these tires! I would actually prefer the re92 to these, at least when buying them as takeoffs. Has anyone else with these tires, experienced what I have. It doesn't matter if the surface is new, old, rough, smooth, pavement or concrete. I really thought that these tires would be a good fit for me, and in my research I hadn't come across anyone complaining about it being noisy? Thank god, Toyo offers a 45 day/500 mile trial period in which if you are not happy you can return them. Well I am exercising this option, and after taking the advice of Tirerack, and of a fellow member I am going with the Pzero Nero M+S. I originally was going to get these, but since I was getting the Toyo's for 30% less, I figured it was worth a try, big mistake! I just thought this might help some fellow members in making a tire decision. I know I would have appreciated it. Once I have the Pirelli's mounted, and put a few miles on them, I'll post another thread on my opinions on them as well. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
