Good question! The Firestone guy said that because of the advanced new compound they needed to be broken in for at least 500 miles. I came back after 1000 saying they still squealed in corners. He swore that they would be great after some more break in.

Well, 5000 miles later, they still suck. You must have a different SZ. Mine are SZ41.

The worst part is what jerks they were in email though.


>I actually don't understand why you recommended them in the first place, if you feel they are slippery everywhere (dry/rain), don't break well, and howl. Did you recommend them before you even had them on your car? :)
