What else can be said about these tires that have not been said: They're too expensive, but better than anything else out there available for this car. Just bite the bullet, grin and bear it.
They last, they're quiet, they grip hard when braking, they let go predictably and consistently, they re-grip as smoothly as any tire I've ever had the pleasure of sliding.
Steering feel is excellent, straight tracking is arrow like, turn-in is only slightly above average, but the payoff in ride is more than worth it. All this and its still the quietest tire.
These are not green tires that will gain any mgp, but they're not meant to be. Will I still be willing to pay so much the next time as the car ages, we'll see, but for right now, at 3 years old and 32K miles, yes it is still definitely worth it.
