Compared to the stock WRX tires, these are awesome. I had a set on a 350Z (in the proper size, of course) and made my choice based on the experience with that car.
Turn in is great, the car feels WAY more responsive. Grip seems good, but they're not really broken in yet so I haven't pushed them much at all. Again, the turn in improvement with these vs. stock is awesome. Rain performance is excellent- hardly worse than dry pavement, from my previous experience. Compared to stock WRX tires, they have a very nice, stiff sidewall.
Ride is a bit rougher than stock WRX tires (I did go to a 17" rim as well, though) and the steering is heavier, even at speed, despite my rims (Kosei K1 TS) being lighter than the stock 16x6.5 rims. A little noisier than stock but not much worse, certainly not unbearable. Tramlines a bit (but they are a 225 vs stock 205) and they will steer a little into an off-center puddle (i.e. water by the curb) and/or hydroplane in very heavy rain (i.e. like we got slammed with last Friday here in Indy).
(I felt I had to put the steering effort as a "bad thing" but I should say that, to me the steering feel/weight is really a plus as it's light, squirrely, and "floppy" feeling with the stock tires.)
Note: The tires tramlined up north on a road with (not exaggerating) 2" deep grooves from constant semi traffic. It was a struggle, but other than that they've been great.
