Wow! Never had a better tire. Had Bridgestone Pole Positions, Dunlop SP5000s, Falken Ziex, etc. - all well-rated by Consumer Reports and well-regarded by enthusiasts. Also have a Lexus LS400 and can't wait for its Bridgestones to wear out so I can replace them with these. Superb ride, quiet, handling. Notice instantly. Worth every penny.
