OK, so I'm a fairly conservative driver, but I like these tires. The original tires were Michelin MXV4, and I debated over these with the Bridgestones, among others. The Serenitys felt slightly heavier and more stable (better grip) on the road. They instantly provided for a softer ride and absorbed the shock from potholes much better. I have had no problems whatsoever in wet weather, and I do have to brake fairly hard at times. Drove over some snow and icy back roads after a mild ice storm on two occasions. My VSA kicked in due to a little ice sliding, but otherwise felt reasonably stable. (I don't know of any tires that can handle ice.) The Serenitys are wearing evenly and slowly, and are not noticeably noisy. -Still seem to have good contact with the road surface. I've done enough research on these tires, and feel confident buying them again without worry. This is a satisfied customer.
