Exactly the kind of tire you're looking for to pair with your performance vehicle. Impeccably composed taking back roads at high speed or driving upwards of 130. Never a complaint from me with the performance of these tires. (just don't be too spirited on wet roads, especially after 15k miles)

OEM tires on my Mazdaspeed3 . Overall not as bad as you hear. I consider them to be an average tire at a premium price . Will not buy again.

These tires were used almost exclusively for autocross on a 2013 Mini Cooper. I got about 15 events, 150 runs, and 2-3k street miles on them before they heat cycled out. I'm at the wear bars now. They still grip okay in the dry, but at the wear bars these tires absolutely hydroplane in any amount of standing water. I don't think they wore that well and feedback wasn't amazing. I preferred the RS3s. Regardless, these tires are discontinued and the ZII Star Specs should be here in November.

OK for all you people who bought this tire for track or autocross, THIS IS NOT A TIRE DESIGNED FOR THAT SO YOUR REVIEW IS MUTE AND POINTLESS! Now on to a real review. This tire at first was noisey, however after about 200 miles its very very quiet. This is the most comfortable tire I have ever owned. Driving a sports car with very aggressive driving I can say that I am truely amazed by this tire. I know its early for a review. But not as early as some people only having driven 500 miles on a tire. Thats not time enough to really write a review people. I have taken this car on the twisties of the mountians here in Southern Califonia and I have to say it never breaks loose even when trying to push the tires past their limit. As I stated above its not a track tire, but putting it through the aggressvie driving I do with AWD punishing them. Even when they get hot they dont lose grip. I know someone on here said they get greasy but that was on a track. On the highways and back roads this tire is the one you want. They help with fuel economy as well with their minimal rolling resistance. They even beat some Ultimate Summer Tires. The OEM tires were Dunlops and these tires beat them in all catagories. I have no rain reviews because it hasent rained here and I wish they would let me give a dirt review because these tires held up very well on the sand and dirt this past weekend when I did a lot of time attack runs on the salt flats. If you have an AWD car like the Evo or STI then this is the summer tire you want.
