Anyone have these? Are they any good. I've found a guy selling set of four for $175.00 (new) 205/50r16. Tirerack has them for 60.00 a piece...I was gonna offer him $150.00. I know these aren't meant for snow but I figured they're better than stock RE92's.

I had them. I think they suck honestly. They're alright for what they are (all-season) but not "good" at anything, know what I mean?

There are FAR worse options so if the deal is there, go for it. There are way better AS's IMHO.

I just put them on my ITR, 205/45-16. I bought them on sale for $46 each... hard to go wrong.
I only have 900 miles on them as of now, but they work and feel good in the rain.
(no thoughts of tracking with them or any serious performance hopes, just DD tires.)

Opps! I just relized they are the Ecsta ASX...
