i love this tire for the wet conditions. not like it doesnt grip in the dry well, because it does, its just that in the wet this tire comes alive. best gripping wet tire ive ever had. now cornering is where this tire suffers. any quick input to the steering wheel and it lags a little bit before giving you the resistance you want in road feel. the soft sidewall is excellent for comfort but this is why this tire is unpredictable in the middle of cornering. if you drive hard, you wont like how this tire feels with any steering input but, for the price there isnt a better tire for pure grip. hangs in there with my dunlop direzza z1 star specs as far as wet/dry straight line traction goes. if you want an all around tire without going in the snow, you cant beat this tire.
