I expected that, though, and I've driven on worse. These things STICK. I don't advocate law-breaking and I don't want to incriminate myself... that being said, These tires combined with AWD, turbo, and low center of gravity inherent in the Legacy GT, I feel as if the tires allow the car to bend space/time. I seem able to arrive at work before I've left. I'll be trying the Goodyear Eagle F1's next time because somebody said they're quieter... I sure hope they stick like these Conti's. Even if you ultimately decide on something else in the long run, you've got to at least give these a shot.
