I bought this tire for my Evo based on reviews, quality, and previous impressions with Yokohama street tires. These tires are superior to any tire I have ever owned. During spirited driving these tires are unbelievably stable at high speeds (150+) and grab like none other on the Autocross track. The technical demand on an autocross track is no match for these tires. These tires deliver on hairpins and slaloms and also have excellent acceleration and braking grip. Something else I noticed is there is no give on the side walls so even during the hardest of turns, there is no rolling over and the tread is touching the pavement where it should at all times. I havent noticed any tire noise and they are smooth even after a race when the treads are cupped. I plan to get about 10k miles out of them which is expected with any tire like this. Im actually surprised they are lasting as long as they are. If you track your car or even just like taking curves faster than you should be able to, buy these.
