These are great performance tires (on my BMW M6). Fantastic traction in the rain and great around corners. I do not know why CR did not rate them high in this category. Tires lasted about 26,000 miles which is very good for high performance tires. I bought another set even though a newer design had just come out.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
