I originally picked these up because of a rear tire flat on some fairly worn re-92's. After installation, the ABS was twitching on dry very light braking applications. I used them for ~400 miles while I was looking for replacements, since I was quite concerned the ABS twitch was the tires (thought the computer would adjust sooner). Right around 400 miles the twitching stopped, but I had already ordered the Dunlops I reviewed above and had installation scheduled. So I kept the pirellis in the garage and ran the dunlops for ~20k and wore them out, and put the pirellis back on. No problems, good traction and quiet. ABS works fine and snow traction is good. Approx 3k miles so far. With the same alignment that had my SO-3's tramlining a LOT, I get none with the pirellis. EDIT: another winter on these, and they work well. Nothing spectacular, but capable. It's been a while since I was stock tires, so I can't compare these to the RE-92's.
