I've equipped these on my JCW R56 18"s and the set handles very well for its type/class.
I'm not bothered by the noise or ride as much, because it's the response and the way I drive is what I'm more concerned of (and I avoid potholes every drive). Spring Summer and Autumn, the tires are great, however I will be trying this set in winter 2017, in slush, wet, snowy conditions.
I am equipping these tires on my new 17" Konig rims for Spring-Summer which will be great.
In My Honest Opinion, these tires are great for commuters and driving enthusiasts, and it's in a reasonable price range and for its performance. I believe It is the way a driver drives that will determine how long the tires last, as well as the road conditions the driver is in.
Keep motoring ! :)
