I had these tires as OE on my 09 Galant SE with 18 rims. The cornering was excellent throughout the life of the tire as was dry stopping and starting. They were OK in wet conditions and decreased as the tread wore down. These were the noisiest tires I ever drove and although there was still about 5K miles left on them I changed them out to save my hearing. I am now on ContiProTrac and although handling is just a shade worse, I am happier due to less noise and a less bone jarring ride. These tires are OK for their purpose but there are better choices for just a little more $.
