#5.) your review and personal comments
After 30,000+ miles I still have tread. I lowered the car last year and now have some uneven wear. Good dry traction, excellent wet traction, great tire wear. Not very noisy, even with 30k+ miles. Sidewall could be stiffer if you are into sharp hard turns and lots of gas.

Overall I am very impressed with these tires, I just ordered the Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2. I am moving again, to North Carolina and I want a great wet tire and a little better ride without much of a performance drop. I will have a review sometime on the new PE2's. I hope their dry traction is close to the RE750. RE750 price 145/per at theRack, great tread life(340), quiet compared to some and plenty of performance for backroads and the twisties.
