Very happy with this tire so far, it seems to do everything very well. I mainly decided on this tire based on the test here on Tire Rack, since it was pretty new at the time and therefore there weren't many reviews of it yet. The only factor that is still somewhat unknown is treadwear, although so far I have only measured a few 32nds of wear at the 1st rotation (done @ around 6,000 miles). Have not tested in any wintry conditions yet either. Seems to stand out in the areas of steering response and dry handling; sometimes wet traction from a standstill has seemed less than ideal, although still acceptable. Looking forward to racking up many more miles on these, will update when they get more miles on them.
