general's are a decent tire for the money

but as you said soft sidewalls and generally disappointing. not a horrible tire though.

good call on the dunlops

I really like the value of the UHP's - my biggest beef with them is always the road noise

what do you guys mean sidewalls were a bit soft on the UHP? I was just shopping tires for the coming season as well.

Soft meaning they feel boaty, and you dont get a very sharp feel of handling from them. Its hard to explain, but they just dont feel like the wheel is where you want it to be.

Its a great touring tire, with great grip. However, on a car like my miata, its not the ideal tire to have. I have them, and never bothered to change em.
