Initial Review: 12,000 miles on tires

My car came with humble Toyos, so these tires are a big upgrade for me. On the positive side, these tires have an attractive directional design and give my car a great grip advantage over the OEM tires. I can attack a twisty road or highway interchange with great speed and they won't lose grip until obscene speeds. They are showing a good rate of wear (I still have about half of the tread left.) In wet weather they are great handling tires, but in the dry they can aren't as impressive. My only complaints are that I have noticed they are becoming nosier as they wear, and while they feel like they are griping they are prone to squealing in high speed corners. Really, if you insist on All-Seasons these are good tires, but if you want true performance, I now know you need Summer Tires. I plan on switching to a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE760's after these are worn out for that reason.
