What a joyful difference switching from a set of Dunlop SP 8000's to these tires. I drove a stretch of road before and after the tires were installed, and it literally felt like I had a set of new brakes installed. The tires are quieter and smoother, and handle better in the corners, where they stick like glue. My next big test with them will be autocross. I'm glad someone is making tires in size 255/50/16, especially these.
