Not many miles yet..I jut put one on mine.. $132 total tire cost at the local...Next price was over $200+.
I use balance beads so my initial drive is dead smooth from stop to 95...Maybe just because it's a new tire,but it does seem to be more stable than the scalloped E3 I took off..It was also over 4 years old....Getting hard too..To remove it quick,after i broke both beads loose , I simply stuck my pocket knife in the sidewall and cut the tire completely off the rim...Leaving the bead right there....I pulled the bead part off the rim with my fingers...Removing the tire took just a few minutes rather than prying it off.

Any time you replace an old tire with a new one it is going to perform a lot bertter. true test is in the long run after it gets miles on it and fun it on different roads and under different conditions, Rain, tar snakes etc.
