I'll have them tomorrow.

I've been very satisfied with General tires in the past (owned by continental). I'm hoping sumitomo proves to be another satisfactory affordable option.

When I get tires for the Miata next year, I'll likely get serious performance meats.
"In a straight line."

That translates to "better for burnouts."

fleetw00d seems to have made some friends! fleetw00d seems to have made some friends!
I just put a set of these on Ruby. I'll update when I have a few miles on them, but already are better than the tires I took off (now I forget what they were, but had 40+k on them).

Now that mine are pretty well broken-in, and they've gotten me through this incredibly mild winter, I can certainly say that I like them. The squirm has disappeared, as I had hoped (just brand new tire squirm was all...) They're certainly not true performance tires, but I feel confident on the road. The road noise and harshness is still significantly better than the Firestone Firehawks that were on there previously!

I would absolutely recommend these to anyone that wants a decent set of all season performance tires on a budget.

That made me lol...

It's a legit brand! Full name is Ling Long Shandong. They're total crap.
