Good tire, probably no longer a "front line" sport tire, but still an excellant choice, especially for the price.

Love those tires, don't last a of a lot of miles, but I was never able to break loose the rear. The grip is impressive.

ok let me add a few comparison street tires...

1) Michelin Pilot Power
2) Dunlop 208
3) Pirelli Diablo

The reason I'm asking is that there is a sale on these for $140/set at the end of the month.
