Overall I am/was very impressed with these tires, have no complaints at all about their dry and wet performance. I pushed them pretty hard in corners and they never failed me, more than once drove them at 70mph through torrential downpours on the highway and other than my wife clutching the dash, never gave me reason to think twice about traction. Road noise was minimal early on, developed more as they wore. In spite of pushing them now and then the majority of my driving was pretty normal around town or highway stuff, so I was hoping for more than 25,000 miles before needing to replace them. Yes I know they are high performance tires, but 25K seems pretty low in the overall scheme of things.
