Great tire. Took them up to the Tail of the Dragon and was not dissapointed. Tires are very progressive in the feel between grip and no grip. They get louder as you reach the limit. This tire makes finding your limits very easy, mostly because I cant seem to find their limits haha. I have recommended these tires to anyone who will listen. They do not last long though as far as tread. I drive on them daily, but in a very enthusiastic manner, and they will last me exactly 1 year. I have not rotated them and if i do they would last me about a year and a half, but i'm buying a new set this year anyways so i didnt bother to rotate them. (i know, lazy). I still rated them high on treadwear because i expected them to wear fast and they have lasted longer than i thought.
