Pros: The tire has much better grip and overall handling than my previous Continental ContiProContacts that came on the car (OEM). The road noise is minimal but some can be heard depending on the road texture. With wider rims (+1) and tires(+20 units in width) I did not notice any decrease in overall mileage per gallon which is always a positive in my books. Tire shoulder wear indicators were nice as they notified me that my alignment was off by a slight amount. As of right now, they seem to be a great value for the money.
Other thoughts: Occassionally these tires will catch a groove in the road and will want to follow it, but that was expected with wider tires. The sidewall appears to be somewhat soft when hitting bumps allowing for a decent ride comfort level, and feels firmer in the corners.
