KP - It seems that the bulgin problem is there in the Certis range. The XM's have been fine on my car & a few other running them. They are very silent & good for ride quality.

GIII's have great grip but due to the inherent compromise in all V-tread designs road noise is much more prominent than normal tread designs.
