I love them. I have them on my civic and given the option I will likely put them on my WRX wagon when I pick it up.

They handle wonderful in dry conditions...break point is very predictable and controllable. I liked my Toyo T1s' almost this much.

Wet they do very well..actually the best wet sport tire I have ever driven. Including many highly priced goodyear/bridges/etc. Liked them better than both sets of Toyo's I had...

So far they are wearing wonderfully. Probably a 30k tire with ease. And that's including some dirt drifting. Ebrake parking idiocy and ebrake u turns. I pound my tires. No chunking as of yet and no rips.

Only complaint I have on them so far is the supposed designed in rim protector doesn't protect the rims...my toyo's were much better at doing this.

oh...and the snow...they will work but I wouldn't recommend it. Had to do it a couple times coming home from the cabin. Surprise it snowed type of deal...no chains no AWD. Feels like the compound stiffens up under extreme cold conditions quite a bit. Like driving on plastic. But who in their right mind would use these in the snow on a regular basis...that's what stock rims and 55 series mudders are for.
