Comments
I had lots of different brand tires and I would say that these are the best tires I've ever owned. They're really expensive, but they perform better and last very long time. Great dry and wet performance. Good braking. I will definitely buy them when these wear out. Recommend!

Wet Performance
I have had these tires for two years and I would say they are amazing! They perform perfectly in the dry and in the wet and I haven't had any hydroplaning! More over, I can drive in snow safely because the tires do good job on it too. And I noticed the long lasting wear of the tires.
What is bad?
Wet braking is good but not excellent.

Comments
I had lots of different brand tires and I would say that these are the best tires I've ever owned. They're really expensive, but they perform better and last very long time. Great dry and wet performance. Good braking. I will definitely buy them when these wear out. Recommend!

I have had these tires for two years and I would say they are amazing! They perform perfectly in the dry and in the wet and I haven't had any hydroplaning! More over, I can drive in snow safely because the tires do good job on it too. And I noticed the long lasting wear of the tires.
What is bad?
Wet braking is good but not excellent.
