I put the ES 100's on about 12,000 miles ago. One thing about these tires is that if you're not racing on the track, they last a long time. Mine still look new. I think the tread rating was at like 280 or something (That's really good for a high performance tire). I agree, they stick like glue. I went from my stock rims and RE92's to 17x7.5 rota attacks and 225/45-17 ES 100's. So when I pulled out of the lot at Americas tire in Tracy, it was like I was driving a totally different car. Damn the stock set up sucks...lol. Oh I also have Ibach springs, so that made a huge difference as well.
