I run these tires on a 255/35/18 wheel. I daily drive with these tires on. And sometimes I do a quick and easy canyon run. Nothing to hard, I dont really take turns more than 50mph. But through the hair pins and s-turns, these tires are amazing once you get them warmed up. At first I was skeptical about driving them on the wet, but if you are driving them conservatively and safely during the rain, they are not bad at all. The only issue is the road noise, these babies are so sticky, it transfers the noise directly into the cockpit of the car, but after a few days, you'll get used to that. As far as tread wear, I've driven them for over 1,000 miles, (mainly highway miles, barely any hard turns or canyon drives) and still barely any changes from camber wear. Especially since I run a slightly aggressive camber on my car. Luckily I have a squared fitment, so that I can rotate them. Highly recommend these bad boys. Makes a huge difference in handling, and also in appearance if you have some nice wheels on.

Had this tire for over a year now on my 09 nissan gtr. This is my second set and I have a feel for hoe these tires perform. Honestly, there are better products out there but these are pretty good as well. There is a bit of tire noise however. Handling is excellent but in wet conditions, I recommend you to switch to all season tires. I have spun out at a closed track in light rainfall. Overall I would say around 3.8-4 out of 5. Btw my gtr has aftermarket wheels. Therefore tire size is different. Just incase another gtr driver reads this.

Great tires used in AZ during summer days. Takes a second to get them warm but wont let you down once warm. Lil bit loud but not much of a issue to keep me from getting them again. Great grip and handling with well over 700hp

Works great on track, or on "dedicated" street drives when you get them heated up. During normal driving in traffic, my lightweight Lotus doesn't put any heat into these things. On a 65F day, an impromptu blast around an onramp or an evasive maneuver will surprise you will very slippery tires. If you have a few corners to prepare them, they'll heat up quickly and stick very well though, even in the wet. On the plus side, the lack of temperature seems to be making them last forever.
