Tires: Ohtsu FP7000

I just bought a set of semi performance 205/50 R15's all seasons. Till next summer then I will go all out on tires. I love these ones though...
Ohtsu Tires

Ohtsu is a sister brand of Falken, I think they are fairly new to the North American market as they currently have very few choices. I've had them on for about 2 days and 300km of city, highway, gravel road and minimal wet surface driving. So far they are great, much stickier than I expected them to be (I just wanted a dependable DD tire). Just a little chirp on 4000 rpm take offs, they make a nice 2nd gear chirp too . Since they are 205's with a 50 series sidewall I do feel them give out a little upon corner entry I can feel the sidewall compress a bit and whine, so u really gotta feather the brake at first, enter corner, get comfy and then Bam ! These tires hook really good in mid 3rd gear range. I have yet to see how they are in heavy rain, but I dispersed the **** out of a puddle yesterday when i drove through it My old tires barely kicked up any water. They have also smoothed up potholes and the bumps on my way to work.. I'll keep the reviews comin on em, but so far my rating would be 7.5/10 (for an all season that cost $79 each) and thats my low 2 day rating, it may still go up...
Pics so it did happen...
