Bang for the buck! If the tires last as long as they appear at this point,(1/32) of wear or less, they will rank up with the best tires I've owned for everyday driving. They are very quite, and smooth riding. Water on the road is of little concern until pooling occurs, then a little grab. My biggest complaint is the slowish response to input. They on my older Volvo, and it's suspension is in great condition, (Koni shocks/struts, IPD sway bars). For comparison, also have an Volvo S60R with Michelin Super Sport's on it, they can't compete, but are in a completely different category. Hankook are still a great tire.
