Default Nokian WR's (Anyone running year-round?)

I have an interest in the Nokian WR - V-rated tires. My wife has the T-rated version on her Civic and they seem decent for an all-season and superior in the snow (much better than WRX with stock RE92's in snow). However we never push the car around corners as the Civic is a bore to drive like that.

My question is, anyone run these in non-winter conditions on a WRX? How do they handle? Are they more imprecise and worse in the dry than the RE-92's?

Dedicated snow tires are out as they have a short tread life. I drive 24k/year commuting three days a week into work, however never when it is snowing.

I drive 600 miles a week on the highway...I have WR's as my winter tire. They are much better in the snow, as good as, if not better in the dry, and just as quiet as the stock tires.
