Nice ride! I had the v12's on my m3 for a while so I got some good seat time with them. For the price, they are a good tire. However, I was less than pleased with them in the wet/rain. Terrible traction, couldn't grip for its life, and just felt unstable. Sidewalls are a bit soft and feel a bit numb on turns. The wear on them was nice and lasted a while. However, if it came down to it, I wouldn't get them again. I would be going with something different (Star Specs, RS3's, or PSS's). For 500 mounted and balanced, that's a good deal for sure. If you plan on tracking them, I would skip out and get something a bit better. Otherwise, for a DD, they are decent tires.
