In general, these are probably good - perhaps great - tires. However, mounting and balancing to get good ride quality has been challenging (my installer has the most current road force balancing equipment, and has spent a lot of time trying to optimize it, and yes, also checking to ensure the wheels themselves aren't bent). Still, there is far more NVH than there should be for a high quality of tire like this.

Tire wear has been good, but not great. Then again, it's a heavy car. Normally the wet and dry traction is quite good, but I've noticed wet traction gets a bit more sketchy when it's colder outside.
