#5.) your review and personal comments
The Tauranzas are vastly superior to the stock RE92s in terms of grip, cornering, and wet traction. In the RE92s I had numerous encounters with "the brake problem" in the wet where the brake pedal would go to the floor as the ABS kick in. I have not encountered this with these tires, after 12,000 miles. The stiffer sidewalls mean much quicker cornering without skidding. In light snow (we send the serious stuff to Cleveland) the car handles well, though these are not winter tires. If you can believe the reviews in TireRack these are up there with the Pilot Sport and Pirelli Zero Nero in terms of all around traction and performance.
