Grip: The amount of traction a tire can produce on a road surface. Tires produce maximum traction when they are upright and perpendicular to the road surface. An upright tire creates a contact patch on the road that has the optimal distribution of stresses. This ensures maximum traction with a long and even wear.

I was looking at those exact tires! Good choice.... i think. I was wondering, I don't know if I should post this elsewhere or if anyone will answer me here, but I have the Road Hazard Warranty and I was wondering if I would get a new set of tire, if those new tires would be covered.

It only covers the stock tires. Once u change them say bye bye. I work at a rim and tire shop and the tire insurence is pretty much a rip off. It dosent cover the tire unless its the tires fault. Most of the time its not :) Im glad everyone is getting the neo gens they rock.


Edit: How much did you pay for them? Just curious... They cost around 60 a tire for the 17.

I personally have those on my 87 bmw 325 on 18s and i have to say they arnt the best grippy tire in the world. The tire is a great highway tire and very quite. But in the rain u will slide around.

Ive driving with the nitto neo gens also. They are probably the best tire for the price it rides the same in the rain as on dry pavement -scott

What he said.
We got about 2 inches of rain here in NC last weekend and I was aiming for puddles, to see how bad it pulled when goin through at speed. I won't say it didn't pull, but I was confident I wouldn't be pulled from the road if I hit one unexpectedly. I cannot say the same for the Contis..... Not to mention corners were very very predictable, having to really throw the car into it to induce a slide. Launching feels like I did a burn out first to warm them up. I can't say enough... Get them if you don't have mud or snow to worry about.
