I've owned this car since new and this is the first set of all-season tires I've had on it. I bought them specifically because of multiple magazine reviews that touted their wet handling. The Direzza Sport Z1 Star Specs which the car wears in summer are fantastic in dry warm weather but don't work well when temperatures drop below 40 degrees and they lose a lot of grip in the wet. The Goodyear's will allow me to drive all winter in cold and wet conditions, although I don't intend to intentionally drive it in snow.
The magazine reviews didn't exaggerate. These tires are fantastic. They handle wet conditions better than anything I've driven except my Hoosier Radial Wet track tires. They give up a little grip and aren't quit as responsive as the Dunlap's in dry conditions, but are far superior in the rain and cold. I don't have a lot of miles yet, but I have high hopes that they will maintain a high level of performance as they wear.
