Decent OEM street performance tire.
For 25000 miles driven, I still have 8/32 tread remaing but having edge wear. 140 treadwear rating was too little for such a premium grade sport tire.

Wet traction was also a bit disappointed but dry traction is almost perfect.

Steel belt in the sidewall is very steady. Perhaps this strong sidewalls make this tire expensive, and would provide very stiff ride.

This tire is OK to anyone who lives in southern area(There is NO snow traction and low temperature also make this tire too hard.) but considering its price, I would not buy again unless OEM.
