Although I have some minor modifications (CAI, Chipped) I very seldom break these tires loose … cornering or from a stop. Quite an improvement from my Conti DWS that I could light-up most any time. Even my wife is impressed by the responsiveness and ride from these tires. We've been on numerous trips (1-2 days) and these tires have never been the cause for soreness or tiredness! I've had lots of top-brand tires on lots of Hi-perf cars (2 Stealth Twin-Turbos and SD455 Trans Am) and these have been the BEST! Even stood up in light snow!!
