These tires were pretty good when new - good wet traction and general handling feedback - i couldn't complain about anything. Then i took it to a track day and its lack of grip became painfully obvious (especially when everyone else is using azenis). The tires also chunked quite badly from the middle - this seemed to make them louder and also less predictable to drive fast with. I got rid of them quickly after that.

Overall they're cheap - but i have since decided to go with slightly more expensive tires (my next choice was the azenis, which although a very different tire, has made me much happier)
