What is good?
Dry Performance
Handling
Price/Quality
Awesome tires in the dry when the tires have been properly warmed up.  You can hear the tires' stickiness driving over painted lines on pavement.
What is bad?
Soft compound means shorter tire life but that's what you get when you go for extreme grip.
I'm hesitant to push the tires in the rain since water evacuation is not the primary purpose of this tread design.
Comments
I will be sticking (pun intended) with these tires for a while until someone can fully convince me otherwise
