After reading a bunch of the reviews posted here, it's easy to pick out who actually bought the tires for the recommended use and who actually read the specs. First of all, this is a SUMMER tire as it's own title states. This is not an all season or a snow tire. Don't expect it preform like one. Secondly, this tire is one step away from a track tire. Only thing missing is a different compound. The reason why this tire handles so well is because it's stiff and it's an ULTRA HIGH PREFORMANCE TIRE. Just read what the tire is and you'll know what you're getting, not that difficult. If you want something that sticks on launch and in the twisties, I suggest these tires. This is an enthusiasts tire, not a BMW 7 series cruiser tire. If you want something for around town and grocery getting, buy an all season. If you are an "arrive and drive" track day type, this tire has your name on it.
Absolute awful tires. Little to no traction whatsoever. The tire actually blew on me when i was cruising at 70mph on the highway. Nearly got me killed. Never will I own another set of Nexen tires again.
