Comment:
First of all, I'm a pretty spirited driver. To make matters worse for my tires, I live in the Appalachian mountains so curvy roads with inconsistent pavement mean my tires don't last long. The hard cornering & braking that mountain roads demand really tests these P Zeros, and they admirably accept the challenge. <br /><br />Hydroplaning resistance and tread life are important to me and I am very satisfied on both accounts. I scrubbed the tread off a new set of Falken Ziex tires in only one year and these lasted 2 years before wet performance got dicey. To further challenge these tires, I drive a 4450-pound Volvo S60 T5 which is heavier than many sport sedans. My tread wear indicators are just starting to show, and the wear is remarkably flat. There's no indication of uneven tread wear in spite of the super-hard cornering these tires are subjected to. <br /><br />Both wet and dry traction is superior ... so much so that my traction control & ABS systems rarely engage. Performance in light snow isn't good though, so I drive a truck when its snowing. <br /><br />I highly recommend these tires especially if you have a heavy car. The P Neros are quiet, have good traction and good, even tread life under harsh conditions.

Comment:
These tires came stock on my 2014 Mustang GT. I daily drive this car 130 plus highway miles. I just realized I have over 35,000 miles on these tires and they still could pass for new. Wet traction is incredible in daily driver situations. The only time I've had these tires lose grip in the rain is when I intentionally gave heavy throttle when turning. And that was just for fun. But in normal driving conditions, I feel just as confident with these tires on this car as I have drving any front wheel drive car I've owned in the past. Other than their tendency to be noisy, these have been incredibly good tires.

The OEM tires on 2013 Mercedes C250. Primarily use: daily commute with ~ 70% freeway. At time of this report, I have put 36k miles on these original tires. I estimate the tire life to be ~ 40k miles (rear) and 45k miles (front). Very good thread life considering they are low profile tires. These tires handle well in both dry and wet pavements, excellent braking performance as well. Road noise is rather prominent, road bumps are noticable. Overall I think these are excellent tires, well balanced between performance and value.
