Default Leao Lion Sport Tires

Anyone have any experience with these?? I have 235/55/17 and on dry road I cant complain, I guess. When its wet tho, normal acceleration causes BOTH tires to spin to the point that the front of the car veers off to whichever direction the road slants...

Im talking about normal (even a little slower than normal) acceleration, not just first gear.. Its 2nd, 3rd..

Take this scenario in mind.. Im going 35mph on a quarter mile on-ramp to enter the highway. By the time I enter the highway im going 55, accelerating to 70.

That slow accel from 35-55 on the on ramp, the wheels would spin making me slide and veer off.. Entering the highway 55-70, tires will spin..

Obviously I can accelerate slower (which of course I do) but its literally such a slow acceleration entering the highway, that I would consider it dangerous..

Im entering the highway at 40mph (cars passing at avg. 80mph) It takes me maybe a mile before I can get up to what I consider safe entering speed... A mile or so AFTER im on the highway..

After allllll that BS.. I still have to worry about the tires holding traction at that speed.. Think its time for some Pirelli's... Loved my p4's.



TL;DR???

Basically im making a review on these tires and saying they are worthless(even dangerous) in wet conditions and mediocre at best in optimal dry conditions.


Stay safe people.

WTH, that is a "NO Go" for sure. What are they a super high mileage tire made from a really hard compound?

I will follow your lead and not recommend them to anyone I know contemplating buying them...
