Initial Review, 8,000 Miles on Tires

I've been running these tires for about 1 year of autocross and some occasional street use to work.

These fair well with heat, I've only had them become "greasy" once on a 100 degree day using two drivers.

These like a bit of tire pressure for me, 38 cold, 42 hot. I'm running a 255/40r17 on a 17x9. Anything less and they roll too heavily. This may be due to my vehicles weight.

Damp traction is fine, but any standing water and these are hilarious. My STi slides around during normal speeds and turns once it is extremely damp. I avoid driving in the wet at all costs.

These are the best street class autocross tire hands down.

I am now on my second set of these tires on my 2005 WRX wagon. Unfortunately I hit a big pothole with my first set and one of them was damaged so I had to replace them prematurely. They were at 7/16ths tread depth and I was on my third summer season with that first set. I just had a new set installed today. I didn't think twice about buying these tires again.

These are my summer tires in Colorado, and I commute over 50 miles per day. I absolutely love these tires. To sum them up, they are comfortable and quiet on my daily commute, but when I go for spirited drives they provide all the performance I need. Sure they're not track tires, but they are grippy and responsive, and they communicate their limit well. For me they are the perfect summer tire for a commuter who likes to have fun driving without worrying about their tires. And I've never had any issues in the rain either. I highly recommend them!
