Ferocious dry grip and cornering ability - extremely stable, crisp and predictable at high speeds. Better than average grip on wet pavement. Never driven on snow (use snow tires).Started to get noisy after about 25,000Km wear. At 45,000Km the rears started to cup and increased noise. Overall, pretty good wear for performance delivered. Would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable performance tire, but premature cupping may be a concern.
