Yes, sir. There're pretty much identical, if not, the difference is barley noticeable. The hole has the same size. The piece itself could be a tad bigger but idt anybody would have a big concern haha.

Re: Richard's '02 V6 Coupe EX-L

Forgot to document that my Powertrix rear LCA were shot last year. I remember running over some nasty dips in the night, and started to have a noise from my suspension from the next day. My rear tires were having a little play on the lift. It turned out to be my Powertrix.. R.I.P.. These were replaced with a new set of OEM LCA @ 171,1xx mi.

Cons: Price being a little on the higher side.
Final verdict: Definitely buy them again. Very good tires for those of you suffering from stiffer suspension setups.
Bought these new in Nov 2011. Drove for 6 years and 3 months, approximately 68K mi until yesterday. At first, I had rear wheels' camber being -2 for a year, and -1.5 all around until 2 years ago, and had it changed to -1 recently. Those unevenly wore out treads were done by me messing around with the tire air pressure.. I'm surprised that these tires lasted more than 60K miles with that setting.

If you got 68K on a 60K tire, you were doing well. Most times you'll only get 50K out of a 60K tire.That inner wear from 6 years of abuse doesn't look too bad either. So they basically cost you 112 a year for the 6 years. That's not too bad in the long run.

Re: Richard's '02 V6 Coupe EX-L

^I'd like to think so, too haha. I actually wanted to be done with these tires last year before the winter, but I kept loosing the chance to replace them.. At that time, the tires weren't reaching 60K miles, so I wasn't too happy about it haha. But the last 8K miles of my driving experience was far from being stable on the ground though; The last payment of $112 was pretty dangerous to the point where my steering wheel was starting to shake quite noticeably on a residential street abt a few wks ago lol.

PIRELLI, CINTURATO P7 215/50R17 91V Grand Touring All-Season Tires
Price paid, Mileage: $574.92 + shipping & tax. 50 mi.
Pros: Very x2 comfortable and quiet ride. Steering response is sharp. awesome dry traction. Wet traction is good enough to handle the weather up here in the PNW. Supposed to have a long tread wear life, so we'll see how it goes.
Cons: Not made in Italy lol.
Final verdict: Yet to be determined, but if these tires reaches 70K miles, I would definitely buy these again.
