I just fitted my S4 with PZero Nero M+S tires last week. I researched the
tires, and Tirerack.com suggested these as the best performing all weather
tires. Based on reviews in all categories, theses tires SHOULD be better
than OEMs for handling, dry traction, noise, tire wear, etc. - in ALL
categories. I'm having some serious doubts....
I have about 600 miles on them, and I've found some interesting dynamics
with them in hard turns. Basically, when I set up in a turn hard, or try to
accelerate out, I am feeling some 'fighting' between the four corners of the
car. I can't explain if it is the traction/anti skid control kicking in, or
if the tires are flat out letting go. My question is this:
Are these tires truly performing better than the OEMs, and therefore I am
going faster and hence the need for the dynamic controls to activate?
Are these performing poorly and the 'fighting' I feel is each tire letting
go or the dynamic controls working to maintain traction?
It's not a confidence inspiring feeling, and I'm thinking of ditching these
tires. The OEMs had a much better feel in hard turns, but they would
totally lose control if there were 2 snowflakes on the road. Any thoughts?
