Overall, not a bad tire, but nothing so great that it would make me buy it again. Dry traction is pretty good, wet traction is good, treadwear was better than expected - about what I would expect from a medium performance summer tire.
They are pretty loud and they tramline like crazy - it's pretty bad on a particular 1 mile stretch of road that I commute on everyday. I have to drive very attentively to keep the wheel straight. It's so bad that at first I thought something was wrong with my alignment or suspension.
Better tires than the RE92's they replaced, but nowhere near a real performance tire, like an RE070. They've gone up in price too much to the point where there are much better tires for the money.
