I've had these tires for over a year now and I LOVE THEM!!! I used to have a 95 mustang convertible that I refurbished and wish I had known about these tires then. I got these tires last year right around the time the DC/VA/MD area was hit with crazy storms and we had flooding everywhere! I drive 66 miles daily to and from work...mostly spend time on the highway and let me tell you these bad boys were awesome! No hydroplaing, skidding, etc, took everything at regular speed while everyone else left and right were hyrdoing everywhere (I felt like I was in a commercial). Anyone who drives a rear wheel drive car knows all to well how easy it can be to bust a donut just about anywhere especially if the road is slick.I really feel safe with these tires. I am one of those people who likes to hear the road beneath them so noise was not an issue. Its a great combo of preformance and touring. I highly recommend them.
