Pilot Exalto PE2, anyone?

I just ordered a set of 4 of these (225/45/17) and was wondering if anyone had any feedback on them. The test results from tirerack were pretty good so I chose them over the Bridgestone RE750. I love the S03's, but wanted to try something a bit different to see if I can get a similar performance with a bit more tread life and wet traction. After all it is just a street car. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks!

My Ride: '00 323i Steel Blue
I just got them a month or so ago and have put about 2000 miles on them. I wanted to go with the Pilot Sport PS2's, but i am running stock 323i sport package 16" wheels and PS2 dont come in 16. The Exalto PE2's are absolutely amazing. I have driven a 330i sport package with the PS2's, and the PE2's are close enough in performance for my taste. The grip is many times better than the dunlop sp sport 9000's i previously had, as well as the wet traction. Tread wear seems to be pretty good so far, but like i said, i only have 2000 miles on them. Once you get them on, give them a hundred miles or so to work out the manufacturing oils and such. Great tire choice.

Chris

Just got them installed and already they are much better than the POS kuhmos I had before. After a few weeks I am going to go test them out on the back roads.
