It's a mass produced car, they don't put really great tires on mass produced cars.

Now, if we had Goodyeard RSA's, then I'd say SUCK big time.
I agree the Conti sports aren't that great at all, but compared to some other crap out there, they ain't too bad. I have abou 3800 miles and they are already getting loud. But, that's why they are getting replaced in the next couple of months. It snows around these parts.

As far as "suck", I don't like the idea of "summer only" tires on a RWD car that's sold in the Chicago area. Now, THAT sucks.

Ditto.

I'll probably need new tires for spring as I'll be passed 25k by than, not sure what to get next. For winter definitely looking at some snows...
