My Ride: makes my pants tight
I just read up on these in my Roundel yesterday...seem like a nice tire.

For the price, I'd still consider Continential DWs over them though...the entire article kept mentioning how these were now as good as the DWs in the wet. Sorry, but I don't track my car I use it, albeit spirited, for driving around highways and city streets. A tire like the DW that is equal in dangerous wet conditions (which really counts in real-world situations), equal/better warranty and a good bit cheaper (Whats the exact cost on the PS3?)....wins my heart (and pocket book) any day.

I'm torn between waiting for the new supersports to come out, or just buying the new S-04 Pole Positions since I can get them by the end of the week... I'm sure they're both spectacular tires

as far as weight is concerned he is correct.... the dry tire compound comes from 24 hour le mans endurance racing.... ill have to read the roundel article... completely all i read was bits and pieces haha

Longer treadwear isnt always a good thing from a performance strandpoint.
haha not sure how it quite works.... theres more definitions on tire racks site under the specific tire and then click warranty.... from what i understand is that they will pro rate the tire for the amount of miles used and then take the difference off the next set... in a perfect world lol
