These tires are incredible. I replaced the original Bridgestones which handled amazing but were horrible in every other aspect with A/S pluses. The first set I put on were Pilot Sport A/S plus and the handling became mush softer with the sharpness gone from the car. They were quiet and smooth but no fun. The Super Sports cured the shortcomings of both the others and I can't express how much better the car is to drive all around. The steering response is now instantaneous and they are quiet whether hot or cold. I live on a brick street and the difference between these and the Bridgetones is night and day. My daily driving consists of urban city driving, long causeways (typically can get over 100 easily) and regular interstate driving. Best a tire I have ever driven on, period.
