I'm on my second set because the first set wore badly and early. These are possibly the least "confidence building" tires I've ever owned. When turning on dry pavement, they seem to hesitate before firming up and gripping. On wet pavement, they are ok but nothing to write home about. In snow.... not a chance. I live in Montana and switch to snow tires in winter, but these are terrible in the freak snows we get in spring. They are fairly quiet and comfortable, but I'll never have these put on again.
