Nitto Motivo 215/50R17 First Impressions

I am trying out the new Nitto Motivo tires.
Just had them mounted. 140 miles so far.
Nice agressive tread pattern.
Quiet ride
Great wet and dry traction.
Smooth ride. Tire absorbs imperfections in road.
Will keep you all updated.

I didn't really choose them, they chose me for their(Nitto) tire sampling program. They send me a set of tires, I use them and review them. I will be keeping everybody posted on how they are.

Update

UPDATE!
Currently have 3000 miles on these tires.
Still look new, Not seeing any wear.
Handle great on dry and wet pavement.
They love the curves, I went through a curve to fast (got nervous), they stuck to the road great. Wasn't sure at that moment, because old tires I would've been in oncoming traffic.
Hit me up if you have any question on them. jimpennjr

Yes, FOC. I know it's crazy, but I'm happy to oblige. So far they have just over 3000 miles and the still look new.

Are they made in 215/55R/16 and 205/60/16 sizes in standard load?
Are yours Standard Load rated?
What air pressures cold?
Where are they made?

When you say quiet have you tried them on all road surfaces, especially roads that have had studded tire wear?
Are they quiet at low and medium speeds? 15-60mph

What are you comparing them with when you say a softer more cushioned ride?
I have tried 6 different tires and really have not found one that is seriously softer/cushioned and still handles reasonably well.

OK ... I'll admit ...I want it all when it comes to my tires.
There's a lot of BS out there in the Reviews.
People making stupid conclusions based on what they percieve to be the true and honest facts.
