Re: Any feedback on the Generals for tires?

In for feedback although I should be moving up to 22s soon. My only issue with tires other than the pirelli run-flats is that you definitely lose some cornering capability.

Re: Any feedback on the Generals for tires?

I just got the Hankook Ventus St's for mine. I am THRILLED with them. Much better/quieter ride than the stock run-flats.. AND they aren't $500/each like the pirellis. I got all 4 mounted/balance at Town Fair Tire fro $860 tax included. I expected to lose a little handling, but I haven't cared or noticed.

Re: Any feedback on the Generals for tires?

General consensus from the reviews ive read on the Grabber is that they're very loud.
I had the Hankook and couldnt get them to balance so I ended up with Yokohama Parada's and they're pretty awesome. Very quiet and great in dry and wet conditions. I can't comment on snow since I run dedicated winters.

They are available in ALL Season and 3 Season. I had the all seasons from sears. Minus the loss of hard cornering they are ok...

Re: Any feedback on the Generals for tires?

I have the parada spec-X - about 3K miles on them since May.

PROS
-quiet
-great ride (with RM mids)
-great wet traction
-fit perfect on stock rims and look very nice

CONS
-break loose when you stomp on it
-loss of high speed cornering esp. in auto (better in sport)
-dry traction not great (dust/dirt on the road, I get them to bark


I was going for the Gen Grabber UHP as my other option, but the noise issue scared me off so I went with these, not a bad tire, but not the performance of the pirelli's
