I really love these tires. I replaced them on my 911 4S which had the old PS2's. I couldn't really tell much of a difference in performance even on the track BUT they were much quieter than the old PS2s. Also, they seem to be wearing well despite the spirited driving. I have a new 911 coming with P Zeros. I will be curious about the differences.

I went through two sets of Bridgestones and one of Dunlops in 27,000 miles, and after 9,600 miles on these, the tread looks like another 10-15k left. I used them on the COTA Formula One track in Austin during a day at NISMO Performance Academy in 2013 and had no problem keeping up with other GT-Rs on stickier tires.<br /><br />They're also great for street driving. So with great tread life and lower cost than the first two set I bought, I can recommend them highly for probably all but dedicated trackers.

Very happy so far with these tires. They made a noticble difference on my G37S sedan. Now that the temperature is starting to drop, I am noticing a bit less traction, but that is normal for Summer tires. I will be putting the winters on soon to remedy this.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
