Super noisy, one tyre split around inside rim in several places for no apparent reason (no damage or marking on rim).

I've only had this tire since early January until now (mid Feb). I did drive from Melbourne to Adelaide 2 days after I had them installed (and back again). Though I feel that I haven't had it long enough to make a full decision, everything I've felt/tested so far seems great so far. Grips will enough in both wet and dry (can't really notice anything bad). How do you judge if it's bad in the wet etc... everything seems to be fine. As for noise...can't say it's amazingly quiet, but at the same time, it's not horrible either... so I'd say it's average in terms of quietness. I'd definitely recommend them to be perfectly find if you're not a person that drives your car hard. Fingers crossed they hold up in a year or so.
