Initial Review: 2,500 miles on tires
September 15, 2012

These are the Best Summer Performance tires I've owned so far. I do about 140 miles a day in my commute which consist of winding mountain road, interstate and city driving - so had a chance to explore those tires in various environment. My front drive VW GTI APR stg2+ with about 280 hp puts big demands for traction and those tires deliver. Handling and braking is excellent with good feedback and response. Be careful on the initial brake in - they are very slippery out of the box.
I was also very surprised with their quietness and bump absorption. Much better than Pirellis P-Zero Nero. The only complain about them is that milage is down by about 12% so you'll be paying more at a pump. I guess they stick too well to the road....
Updates will follow as the miles pile up....
