I wouldn't buy these again particularly due to high road noise and the lack of wet grip. Wear is not great either given they are used very lightly. Have tried at various tyre pressures and the noise at low speeds is very intrusive regardless. At higher speeds, it only gets worse. Avoid if possible!
Great tire in the dry and i was quite impressed with it in the wet as well. Fronts have been on for 10,000 miles and are starting to get quite low, rears lasted 8,000miles but this is on a bmw thats gets a hell of a thrashing. Pretty easy to go sideways when tread gets low but otherwise very impressive tires. Great down country roads, stopping distance is remarkable and they never lock up, cornering is very impressive at even at triple figure speeds (i dont live in the uk and only drive fast when i can see the road ahead is clear)
Been waiting for these to wear down as they just last so long! Found a nail in the drivers front and was almost happy with the decision to change all of them! Nowhere near the performance of other top brand tyres I have used, and I would compare performance of that of a good budget. Not bad in the dry, giving predictable and consistent break away limits, but straight line high speed stability is below average. Wet performance is ok on the straight, but likes to understeer even at the lowest speeds in the twisties. I would also say they are quite niosy too. Doing this review after changing to Continental sport contact2's and the difference is outstanding!
