personal comments:

There is initial squirmyness and lack of directional stability under acceleration, as with any new tire, but that diminishes after a few hundred miles and the WRs feel more stable than Dunlop M2s. The tire behavior is also improved by bumping up the pressure 2-4 psi all around to stiffen them up. Cornering grip is quite good, and you'll only lose about 10 mph in maximum ramp speed (at below freezing temperatures!). The tires also feel solid and quiet when you choose to test the V rated limit. Rain performance is outstanding, better than the Toyo T1-S. No snow data yet.
