good all rounder, feedback's good, very stable at 200kph+ handle my aggressive driving!! superior to the yoko's that they replaced and cheaper marginally.. high wear resistance but don't expect miracles they are silicon compound so will wear a little faster than normal, however i run a bit of camber and with correct tyre rotation i should get my $$ worth.

THE WINTER TYRE MONSTER! I drive a Volkswagen Phaeton which weighs 5500 lbs. All wheel drive. I wanted something that would grip in the winter months of Chicago. HOLY COW!!! Ive got 135mph in a snow storm... no drama... Pulled trucks and cars out of crazy deep ditches and drove through snow mobile trails. The only reason i was able to do any of this was these amazing tyres!

Dont ride em when the temp is above 45 degrees cause they will basically melt right off given they are made of silicone.

An amazing marvel.

I think they are on the expensive end when it comes to silicone based tyres and I dont know if there is an advantage, I trust the Bridgestone name so thats what i went with.
