So far not crazy about the new high beams....it's been raining hard so, again, hard to judge. Should see some really dark freeway miles in Utah Satuday night. Test to continue....

Getting new shoes in the morning....195/60/15 BF Goodrich Advantage Controls on the stock wheels.
High beams are just adequate....will be looking for more.

Back from an 19-hour sprint trip across Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, & Nor Cal. Snow, rain, ice, cold, dry roads. New tires were solid in everything. Yay! Spent most of the time above 80 in the dry (up around 95 a few times) and 50-70 in hard-pack snow. Big fun! 33 mpg over 1150 miles in some nasty conditions. Happy. Love the aero details I need to wash off tomorrow.

What did you find to listen to while all this wind whacking was going on? [driving]

After you have put a few more miles on the BFG's, maybe you could give us some impressions of how they behave? Do they "tramline" on grooved road surfaces? Wet traction? Noise level reasonable or do they sing on the highway?
My blue 2011 hatchback has a set of Cooper weathermaster all season 195 60 HR 15. They are good in wet but are very loud on dry pavement, especially so on concrete.

Just put 2300 miles on them. Solid tire. Not noisy. No issues on grooved pavement. Good in the wet and on snow-packed. Gotta say, quite pleased with them. The steering got a touch lighter but I expected that after the rocks I was running before. I haven't had BFGs since the late 80s & early 90s (Comp T/As). Same thing I expected then I got now.

Cool. I will look at a set of the BFG's for the 15 inch O.Z. Ultralight wheels that have a used up set of Dunlop Direzza tires. I was going to send the Dunlops out in a blaze of glory at an autocross. But that was two years ago and they have aged out.
