I use this tire as my daily tire along with my autocross tire. As a normal road tire it is one of my favorite summer tires. As an autocross it likes to run a lot hotter then other tires that most people run in autocross. Turn in feel isn't as good as some tires but still feels confident. My favorite thing about this tire is the price, one of the best tires for the money. And is one of the nicest riding summer tires because it doesn't have a rock hard side wall. Pretty average in the rain like most summer tires. I would probably buy these tires in the future but luckily i keep winning free ones. Thats another plus if you run these in the scca, kuhmo pays out double on contingency on this tire.
