So far, I like. Haven't tested them in adverse weather yet though.
I agree. They feel fine for normal driving, but they're a bit soft for any spirited. I can get the traction control to light up when rolling into 3rd gear on dry pavement, but I have close to 500WTQ. FFS'ing into 4th feels a little iffy due to the slippage (but you really shouldn't be taking them up into those speeds anyways). As long as you're just driving around, then they feel fine. They're not a performance tire though. They do great in the snow.
