In reviewing the Tire Rack reviews, one thing I've
noticed is how different the responses are on some
tires (some people love them, some hate them). 
Although I truly appreciate your comments, this tire
is one of the few that I've had TERRIBLE experiences
with.  They were mounted on my father's Integra GS-R
(which I frequently drove), and it was the worst foul
weather tire I've ever encountered.

Again, I appreciate your comments/recommendation, but
unfortunately based on my own experience, I don't
think I'll be going down the XGT path anytime soon.
