Simply the best money can buy
It was the love at first powerslide. I was skeptic at first but they really have reinforced sidewalls (I have cut one tire in half) with steel inserts. It is hard to install tire on rim.
After first date our love got stronger with every test drive. Handling is unreal, it reacts precisely to driver’s input. It is like installing sport suspension just with tires. There is very little deformation or twisting of tire. I had to change my suspension setup because my car started to heavily oversteer.

Not only wall reinforcements not known by any sport tire but also construction designed for “excessive” camber angles. It simply adapts to chassis setup. I run -1.5deg on front tires with toe in setup. It kills any normal tire on front-heavy TDi. This tire survives those aggressive suspension setups with even wear !!!
I have not found another tire with such a rich feature set.
Only downside I have found…once tires are worn, center of tire caves in and creates ass-like shape. Tyre becomes unstable at certain surfaces and your wet driving speed drops to 60km/h.
