You do get the steering tug with the 102 as well, deeper water, the more pronounced it is. That's just the laws of physics.

No movement or control issues or loss of traction due to hydroplaning.

Actually your previous accounts of the ZIII are what tipped me to try them, thanks!

Care to name a couple of them around the same price point?

Not disputing your statement, since I can only compare to what I've used personally, but just for my info for future reference.

I was referring to the lower end such as 102s. I always overspend on tyres.
For the price of ZIII it is hard to beat.

Thanks for the info. I think I'll stick to the 205's.
I admit the 205 looks better. That 10mm really makes a difference also sidewall is slightly higher than the 195 giving a bit more clearance for humps and comfort in the rough..

Any BF Goodrich users here? I have the g-force Sport 215/40/18. Only issues I noticed were the noise and stiffer ride (was told the sidewalls are sturdier than other brands when I bought them). First time having to change tyres so was wondering if anybody had experience with this brand compared to others. Wondering if to go back with the g-force or try something new and hopefully better. Thanks.

Looking to get some 215/40/18. Currently have BF Goodrich g force sport but was looking for something with similar traction but a bit less noisy. From checking around I am finding Durun, Federal, Wangli, Nankang, Royal Black, Nexen and Comforser. Tyre Clinic has the Dunlop LM703 and I could get back the BF g force.

Reviews are limited for that model Dunlop other than hearing that Dunlops get noisy after a while. I know some of the brands I mentioned are out of the question but could anyone give me some insight. Thanks.

Dunlop's are the guiltiest party but most tyres in the performance category for me do make noise when loosing thread. My contis were quiet as a mouse when new, now they are noisy but not as bad as my Star specs at same stage.

Thanks. Given that the BF and Dunlop selling for almost the same price I may just go back with the BF. Really wish they had the Sumitomo HTR ZIII in that size. Would have tried it. Thanks again.
