Performance is good but the thread design confuses/concerns me. They go and make a directional design but it's not directional... The solid bar on the tire is not on the outside to enhance cornering grip, the grooves are turning the wrong way etc.

Excellent in all applicable categories, haven't had them long enough to rate them for winter performance. I will append my review next spring, but I expect performance will be extremely good. They are super quite, and have surprisingly good lateral stability for not being a low profile tire.

I was going to report on this tire at 1000 miles but now at about 450 miles there is much to say. The ride continues to improve and is getting quieter. Handling especially in the dry is also better and the Outback is approaching "tossable" when it comes to going through curves. For those who know the DC beltway (I-495) near the Moron Temple, I can now take those curves at near 70 MPH and the car tracks beautifully.

My first experience with wet braking was good. The tires slid but much less than the OEM Continentals. Dry braking is better and the stopping distances are shorter.

Fuel economy has suffered a bit down about 1 MPG but this is a fair trade off to significantly improved handling and a car that is more fun to drive.

I love how these tires handle. Take in consideration that the rubber on these tires are thinner than most tires built to last mileage wise. Expect to spend more on tires that doesn't last longer than approximately 30K miles due to the fact that the rubber on these tires are thinner than those tires that can go for 40K+ mileage. The reason for the rubber on these tires are thinner is because performance wise it handles better on the road, it has that "hug" affect. There is more control over the vehicle than those other tires that can last 40K+ miles. Of course, these tires wear out quickly just to the fact that the rubber is made a little thinner.

So, yes these are great .. sport performance. Cost is expected for performance not for the long lasting performance. So depending what is sought out..These are the best for performance handling. The cost is steep .. but you get what you pay for. I'd purchase it again!
