After 35,000 miles of varied and spirited driving on them, these tires have proven themselves throughout California. I have Volvo V70R with almost 400 HP. They replaced former Pirellis and did a better job. Both quieter and more cornering hold, wet and dry. I was impressed by them when new, but many tires impress when new. These still impress and they have about 7-10,000 more miles before the wear bars come up. I would recommend these tires. My ratings are perhaps higher than some others since after 50 sets of tires only one has ever scored a '10' in any category in my book.
