 Falken Azenis PT-722 A-S

My experience with the PT722's seems much different from the other more negative writeups I seen. I have theses on a Gen1 MS3 (263 HP, FWD), drive in western NC with a bit of winter/cold but leave this car in the garage for that weather. I put more psi in the tires by 10-15%...find handling is very good with little to no push/oversteer in corners with Koni/larger swaybar setup. Traction is also very good with minimal wheel spin, usually just a chirp with traction control on, and have almost never had the ABS kick in in the dry. Performance in the rain is more than adequate..at 6-7/32's of tread I have no hydroplaning and traction remains confidence inspiring if I pedal back a bit. Wear rate is excellent as is noise/confort level. I rate them every bit as good as the Conti DWS I had but the Falken's life far superior. Handling/traction nearly the same as the Kumho Ecsta's with wet handling much better. Liked these tire enough to put them on my C300 4matic.

 Cooper Zeon RS3-G1

Dry traction is superb with these tires, grip at 0-10 degrees Celsius has blown me away. I have driven these tires on spirited roads and have a very hard time trying to put these to their limits as they have more grip then I feel comfortable pushing my car. I knew these tires were all season rated but never expected them to be so good at low temperatures. Also ran these tires in light snow around -4 degrees, and being used to using severe snow rated tires every winter season here in Newfoundland, these tires surprised me with their performance. The car felt stable on the highway doing 100km/h even around turns but I would not push them too hard in the snow. I have not used these tires in a whole lot heavy rain but these handle the ruts in the road well and starting off quickly on wet pavement (front wheel drive) has not been a problem. Coming from having winter tires on before installing these, they are like riding on a cloud and very quiet because they are a soft compound. It's hard for me to say much about treadwear on these as I have only driven about 3000km but I already have 1/32 worn off the front tires and about 1/64 work on the rear so they seem to be wearing faster than other touring category all season tires I have used, but this is to be expected due to my aggressive driving style. For the price I would highly recommend these tires if you're living in an area where the temperature dips below 15 degrees Celsius during their running season, because these tires keep performing as good as summer tires in much lower temperatures.

 Toyo Extensa HP

Have thoroughly enjoyed these tires for almost 60,000! Both previous sets of tires on my Mazda 3 only reached 40k. I purchased these tires after trying a different tire from TFT, but my car felt like it was drifting on the highway (tramlining). This behavior really bothered me as most of my miles are highway. Just about to get a new set installed again.

 Bridgestone Potenza RE-11A

This is an amazing high performance tire that got me podium finishes at autox in my local stock class and was very comfortable to drive daily. All around great summer tire that loves to go around corners in the dry and is one of the best tires I've driven in the wet
