On my Audi S3, these tires are fantastic, especially in the rain. They grip well in fast corners and offer excellent braking. The ride is smoother compared to my previous Continentals. They handle dry conditions excellently, but are not ideal for drag racing.

Driving my 2012 VW Golf R with these tires has been a game-changer. I've clocked over 40,000 km, and they have been consistently reliable. Initially, I noticed heavy shoulder wear at 39psi, but adjusting to 44psi solved that issue. These tires have transformed my driving experience, especially in the wet. Compared to my previous Bridgestone Potenza RE003's, the Maxxis offers superior grip and handling. I took a long road trip from the UK to Greece and back, and the performance was stellar on both highways and city streets. They’re quieter and smoother, making long drives more comfortable. They’ve held up well over time, showing minimal wear, and continue to provide excellent traction.

I had these on my Mercedes Benz E350 for about 7,000 miles. The outer edges wore out quickly, and the inner edges started peeling off, creating a 10mm gap. Despite regular wheel alignments, the tires seemed faulty. It was a dangerous experience, and I won't buy these again. The grip and handling were subpar, especially compared to other premium brands. I had to replace them earlier than expected, making them a poor investment for me.
