Purchased these tires by a friend's recommendation, to replace a set of Dunlop SP Sport 8000 (NLA) The Dunlop's returned greater feedback and were far more solid feeling, esp when cornering. These tires feel softer in hard corners and give less feedback. BUT, comfort / noiuse has improved and wet performance is far superior. Traded some sportiness for safety in the inclement weather. Sometimes wish I'd listened to myself aNnd tried the Conti Extreme Contacts. Tire Rack did a bang up job od deliveing to my garage of choice, as usual. Fifth time buying tires here and I will continue to do so until the tell me to go away. Thanks guys.
