Good road manners, never had an issue with ride quality or wet handling. However, they are a little noisy and have horrible tread wear. Bought these from tire rack in 2008. These tires barely lasted a year. At 20,000 miles, they had to be replaced. Did all the usual rotation and maintenance, but have never seen a tire wear so quickly. Replaced them with Dueler H/L Alenzas in 2009 which are still going strong today.
