I purchased this set specifically for driving Hwy 129, the Dragon in Fontana, North Carolina for Mini's on the Dragon event. They replaced my 195/55/16 run flats. When I got to the Dragon I let her rip and put the tires to the limits. The one word I can say is that they stick, stick, STICK! Steering is predictable but seems just a smidge less responsive than the run flat, but I can deal with that for the road noise and ride improvement, which was huge. My previous run flats made me scared in the rain...I'm not scared anymore, excellent rain handling even at interstate speeds. This car is my daily driver. I do not have a whole lot of miles on this set yet but so far I would absolutely purchase another set again.
