    Pros: Great all around tire, great dry traction

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price; initial wet traction
    Cons: Wet traction dies after 10,000 miles; low treadwear

    Summary: Background: First let me say I've done a lot of research on tires and am very picky given I frequently drive at the limits. Yes, I've earned trophies autocrossing, but on the street I want a good wet tire. Why? Because having 90% of the ... read more

    Cons: Treadwear is very fast, noisy after worn 50%, wet traction suffers with treadwear.

    Pros: Wet and dry grip, reasonable price
    Cons: somewhat noisy

    Summary: I purchased these tires in a deliberate effort to move away from the Z-rated performance tires I had been using to something with more of a balance between performance, wear, and year-round usability. I've had them for about six months (put about 10,000 ... read more
