I have them on my Speed 3...very happy so far. They are equally sticky to the stockers but they last WAY longer. My stockers were done after 30K (kms) and I've put 30k on these and they still have 70% left. I paid $900 (CAN) all in (taxes, mounted, balanced, valves, etc)

well i put them on last night and wow. you dont relize how much the stock tires suck till you have good tires. over all i would give these tires a 9. i warmed them up and did a couple on and off ramps and 90 degree turns. i can go a avarage 15 to 20 mpg faster in turn with out tire squeling compared to the stockers. i say for the price they are not bad at all.. oh ya. they look great too

I've had them for a while now. I wanted a performance summer tire with a higher treadwear rating and these seemed to fit the bill.

I'd have to say their dry performance is as good, if not better than the RE050's, but watch them in the rain. I'm not impressed with their wet performance at all. I've hydroplaned a few times with them already. If you're right foot is heavy on the gas in the rain, you won't go anywhere fast. The sidewalls are very stiff, so expect a firm ride. I used to run a few psi over stock tire pressures, but not anymore. I keep them at the stock psi because the ride is pretty firm. Overall, I'm happy with them. I drive 24k miles a year, so I was looking for something that'd last a little longer than a tire with a 140 treadwear rating.

15-20 mph faster in turns than with your OEM tires?

Really?

WTF are you smoking?

Yeah, I'd be willing to bet the RE050's are better than these. Lots of people complain about them, but the RE050's are a great tire. Lots of high dollar sports cars come with RE050's.

From a traction standpoint the RE050's are fantastic. My biggest complaint with them was road noise, especially as they wore. Most people go from comparing worn tires to new ones, which is apples to oranges. As tires wear the tread gets firmer, translation has less grip. By nature people are also always looking for the new part/product/item to be better than what it replaced, rendering them somewhat jaded.

Glad to hear you like them, I bet they are great tires. I know for a fact that they are miles better than my craptastic Nankangs, but I can't complain to much about free/really cheap.

I have them as well. Got them for a great price at work. Nice and sticky. They only weigh a pound more each than the RE050.
