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.
Thank you for the awesome review and advice! Good things to keep on mind. The only thing I'm worried about on the RS3s and Star Specs is the treadwear... but the PSS look fricken sweet. That was what I originally wanted.
