Review update -(note M56S); I tried these instead of previous Bridgestone PP S04. The Bridgestones are in a different category of tire and as far as hard starting and cornering there is a marked difference. However, these do okay in all conditions including countering hydroplaning and are better all around than the original tires. The PP S04s only lasted 1 summer, so there is a steep cost for the out performance as these will last much longer. Have different snow tires (required in my climate) and have not tested these in any snow at all.
Exceptional tire for the price! A lot of bang for your buck. Handling has been awesome in the dry and wet with no braking or hydro planing issues. Ride and performance is on par with the oem Brdgestone pontenzas for half the price. Definitely recommend this tire for sport cars and sport sedans.
