Wow!!! THis is hands down THE BEST high performance street tire out there. It's the perfect balance of quiet smooth driving, AMAZING wet performance and great dry traction. It's not as good in the dry as a Hankook RS3 or Pilot Super Sport, nor as quiet as a grand touring tire designed for the ultimate in comfort, but it IS the best of all worlds. As I said...the wet traction is the best out there from what I've found. And all this grip with a long tread life? Wow. :) I can't wait to buy another set!
