I bought these after reading many reviews. They are mounted on extremely light 15x8 rims. I was astonished with the dry grip these tires have, even when they are cold. They are good in the rain, but not as good as the Toyo T1-R were. They ride well and are surprisingly quiet, something I didn't expect. I won't be using these in the winter, so I cannot comment on their abilities in the snow. The reviews were correct. These are without a doubt the best tires I have ever had on my 1994 Supercharged Mazda Miata.
