Only 1000 km on these tires so far but nice grip in fast corners in both wet and dry. Better than the OEM Bridgestone EL400 A/S tires. No tire squeal, just sliding when g forces exceed grip under extreme cornering. Ride comfort is slightly firmer than the OEMs but they are also lower profile (30 vs 35). Similarly noise is no worse than the OEM tires which is to say they are fine - nothing loud that drowns out conversations at any speed including highway. Speaking of highway ride, tire is very smooth and doesn't grab imperfections and I believe it's thanks to the continuous center rib. Treadwear is too early to tell but no visible wear wear yet. No winter use and not planning on it! Excellent performance tire overall at this point in time especially when factoring in the price. These are re-branded highly regarded Falken FK452. I highly recommend these tires.
