After 6 months on these tires, I can't say I have been overly impressed, this is the 5th sport tire I've driven on and the first Michelin which I expected to be the best. I would say it is very similar to the BFG KDW2 without the noise as wear increases. I don't think this tire perfectly matches the car as it actually allows you to find the car's weakness in under steer well before the tire gives out. One other note, the tire has a very pronounced rolled edge rather than a squared shoulder.
