Spent a weekend in Sacramento area from SF Bay Area this weekend. Had mix of crazy weather over weekend - sunny & dry, cold and slightly icy, hard pouring rain and a bit of hail. Tires performed extremely well over dry asphalt - quiet, sticky, crisp and responsive. Was expecting it to deteriorate in rain, hail and wet pavement, but didn't skip a beat. Not a single chirp through hard acceleration, confidence in quick lane changes and stuck like glue in short bursts of high speed maneuvers (95). A bit of noise on grooved concrete highways, but not any more than expected. I didn't push it to its limits, because of slick roads and traffic, but very happy with it so far. Time will tell how well they perform as they wear and how they hold to 45k mileage warranty.
