I have run these tires fir two seasons now and i have been pleased with their performance. Confidence inspiring through corners when dry and wet. They will hydroplane over standing water but its predictable and managable. I bought them for autoX but was too cheap to buy commuter tires as well so after two summers of 74miles to work and back each day they have worn down and make alot of noise. This wasn't unexpected with 180 tread wear but its not a bad idea to run two sets if you have a long commute.
