Excellent grip and turn-in, even when cold. Surprisingly good in the wet but don't expect miracles in standing water at speed. Still performed far better than expected in heavy rain. Very loud ride noise. You may even think you have a bad hub bearings. Some surfaces and speeds worse than others. It doesn't bother too much but I wouldn't want them on a daily that wouldn't utilize them as the trade off wouldn't be worth it. Overall, an excellent performance tire for the money. Hard to beat. If you can put up with some road noise, like many of its competitors in this category, then I recommend. Couple extra tidbits: They do run a bit wide which is nice. Not sure how treadwear will be as I haven't had them long enough to truly determine tread life.
