I put these on my GTI because it came with some Pirelli Pzero All Season tires that would not hold traction with an APR Stage 2 tune. These tires immediately transformed the car into a much more stable platform, both in straight line as well as cornering. These tires bite the ground aggressively.
I put 20k miles on them and show very little wear, I don't know how Michelin does this, but as a result I just purchased a set for my 2011 Corvette Grand Sport. This car's OEM Goodyear Supercar Gen2 runflats were at the wear bars in 9,000 miles!
