The best way to describe these tires in one word is glue. Right out of the garage (where installed) they give you a sense of being glued to the road. I selected track/autocross due to the setup on my truck but I also spend a fair amount of time on the Autobahn and these tires don't care. 100+ mph and the ride doesn't change; no slipping and sliding, strong cornering, and no give when braking. I've owned a few different tires that were supposed to provide this performance level at cheaper prices but it was worth the extra $200 per tire to get this kind of traction and performance. Not sure how many mile I will get before they have to be replaced but I will be buying a new set when due.
