Beat on these day in, day out, long trips, daily commutes, they took a beating from me. Now this is based on a Fiat weight, not sure how they may handle on heavier cars.
From my personal experience though these tires are precision. I can know their limit, or when they are heated, when they feel overheated, or when they are low on tread. Maybe I've just grown a more sensitive bottom than other people, but I have zero complaints whatsoever.
One of the few tires in a size available for my little Fiat. They have been very good in all winter weather conditions. They handle well, they are not noisy (my car is noisy enough) and they have seemed to have worn well. Price was good through the website and was a good 500-600 dollars cheaper on here than through anybody locally. A great tire for small commuter cars. I would buy this tire again.
