I probably have 7,000 miles on my MT's, and they are still in good shape. This includes 3 trips to the strip, and some spirited drives with the local BMW club. To me, they felt fine in the corners, as they were causing the front tires to push. Obviously, there are much better tires for corners if you are really pushing the car to it's limits, but I couldn't be more happy with the all around capabilities of these tires. They even exceeded my expectations for wet driving.

Very good to know! Are you using the ET street II's also? What size and what size wheel are they on?

What are you guys running for camber in the rear?

I drive the same on them as my Invo's when it comes to hard cornering and they are just fine. I leave them at 32psi, even at that psi I get perfect traction.

Need4spd: how big was your sidewall? must of been huge to have corning problems
I had 275/40/17" 9-10" inch wide rim. I always run them 30-35psi.

Thats weird that you had such horrible experience with the tires in the corners then. exp with a wide rim and high psi in the tire.

Yellowssm: I try to keep the camber close to zero as I can now just for more tire on the ground and better traction in the straight.

cool. You were saying you squeeze a 305 on your 10" wheel right? is there any negatives to doing this? If not I might try squeezing a 295 on my 9.5" wheel
