these are by far the best tires I have EVER purchased for my TL. The previous tires were bfgoodrich g-force summer tires and as soon as I left the mechanic shop i immediately felt the difference in quality. With these tires i was able to stop immediately when braking vs always skidding a little with the g-force, its smooth and extremely responsive, and I noticed they they are much quieter than the g-force. I really wanted to test out its cornering capabilities so i took a turn 30 mph faster than i normally would (I know that stupid and a safety risk...blah blah blah...i made sure there weren't any cars around me!) but overall i am very satisfied with these tires and i will definately buy these again!
