These tires are a great bargain, and have very good ultimate traction in the dry. They stand up well to track events (HPDE), and seem to be very tough and well built. The sidewalls are a little too soft, in my opinion, leading to slower steering response. However, this results in a very comfortable tire that soaks up bumps. It is also quiet. Wet traction is overall good, but once the tread wears, wet traction is considerably reduced (not surprisingly!).
