I drive a slightly enhanced RX8 Mazda, I purchased these Bridgestones to replace a worn set of Michelin PS2 Summer performance tires. My hope was to upgrade the wear characteristics from a Summer performance tire, and yet not sacrifice too much performance to a longer wearing max performance all weather tire. I have been a huge Michelin fan for a long time, so this change and purchase was a leap of faith for me. These tires are as good an all around performer as any tire I have ever used. They are precise in handling, track nicely on highway trips, and most important they are running true and wearing nicely. I will buy this tire again without any hesitation whatsoever. These tires are awesome. For a long time I thought only the French could make a round tire, looks like our friends at Bridgestone hit a home run with these.
