So far these are great tires. No detectible wear with just over 3000 miles thus far. They are very quiet running tires. The wind resistance is far louder that the tires. They only time I notice any noise from them is when encountering bumps and groves in the road surface at highway speeds. The impacts are absorbed well though, and the ride maintains a fluid smooth feel. They are responsive and have a quick and direct connection with the steering wheel. I can drive as aggressively in the wet as I can in the dry. I haven't come up against any major puddling yet but the few small puddles that I have crossed didn't require me to slow down and I experienced no hydroplaning. I can usually manage 15 to 20 mph faster than the maximum safe speed limit around sharp corners and entrance/exit ramps without tire squeal. I have only encountered small amounts of snow, about an inch, and these tires handled it better than any I have had in 25 years of driving. They didn't slide or spin and I drove like it was warm and dry. They are wider and look more aggressive, side wall and tread pattern, than the pictures indicate. If these make it to 60,000 miles as the warranty indicates then I have found the tire that I will buy again and again.

Running a staggered setup, 255s in rear, and 235s on the front on 17s. Using the XL rated tires (Extra Load). Purchased mainly for tread-wear and noise ratings, and they definitely deliver on the quietness promise - tread-wear is TBD, but seems in line with the specs. Tends to squeal fairly easily in the dry, but long before they break loose - a good warning to back off. Definitely not for racing. Wet performance is excellent - the best I have experienced, but may depend on the size - I noticed at my local dealer the smaller width tires are missing one the of huge water channels my wider set has. I have not driven these tires in snow, as I have dedicated winter tires (a must-have in Canada), but expect better than average winter performance for an all-season due to the synthetic compound.
A note on the XL tires: The thicker sidewalls may save you a lot of grief in the case of a flat. I had a long screw puncture the outer edge of the tread diagonally all the way through the sidewall of the tire while driving on the freeway at high speed. The tire amazingly stayed in one piece, allowing me to safely pull over to the side of the road and completely saved my newly refinished BBS wheel from damage. If the XL rated tires are available in your size, I highly recommend getting them - the slightly harder ride is a small price to pay for the safety of the thicker sidewalls.
