Running 285/35/19's all around with Palm Beach Dyno tune these tires have "never" let me down in traction in rain or dry! I'm on my third year riding on these tires and by the time November hits it'll be time to replace them for the upcoming March of 2021. I'm pretty sure that I can get another 4-6 months out of it but it's always better to play safe and not go out of control but will monitor the tread marker to see if I can do it. Getting 8 months each year for the last 3 years on these tires is just awesome and the price, just amazing for what you get! Overall an awesome deal and great summer tire!

These are great summer tires. Super sticky, track straight and quiet. With a 350HP V8 and front wheel drive these tires just keep fighting for traction when my previous Bridgestone's just gave up in a cloud of smoke. Best of all they are a great value. I've had a few people ask me for my opinion on these tires as they are not common on the road. No regrets with the Indy 500's. Don't even think about using them in light snow - couldn't make it down the street in front of my house.

The first day I got them installed we had torrential rain and 75 mph winds. I made it through all that and one hour traffic safe and sound. No complaints. Unlike most people who use this tire, this is on a 2015 Audi Q5 V6 TDI stock. I decided on this setup because this SUV drives much sportier than most SUVs out there. It is also my first SUV ever, actually my wife's, but I drive it for now. Long story. Anyway, I wanted the drive to be as much car-like as possible, as sporty as possible, and to complement Audi's great handling character. Mission accomplished!!! Again, no complaints. They're very sure-footed on the highway, keep the car stuck to the ground. Already took a 3-hour one-way road trip with them and they were great on the highway. They handled great in wet, already proven and dry, especially aided by the Quattro. ;) I had Nokian zLine summer-only before and wanted to put the SUV version, but I could not find the size I wanted (this SUV takes many sizes) and what I found was pricey, thus the decision to try this Firestone. I can`t complain. If they keep on driving like this and give me good Tread Life (treadwear is 340), I might just buy them again, if I can`t find the Nokians in the size I want. The Nokians are more comparable to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport if you`re familiar with the tire. The Firestones might be on their last summer (the 3rd), still have some tread left. I've rotated them every summer. I would definitely buy them again unless I find something better for around the same price. It allows me to drive the Q5 hard without much fear. I love how the car handles with these tires. They're great in dry and wet without any complaints. The Quattro helps as well. I do have these on my non-Quattro A3 and they're equally as good. No complaints, no road noise, maybe they'll be good next summer (4th season)? We'll see.

Very good for the money, I run 285s all around. I haven't had the front end slip on me yet, however it does struggle to put the power down in the rear on corner exit. My car makes 412hp with upgraded suspension. These tires will get lit up in first with traction control off and dumping the clutch, but hook afterwards with a hard shift to 2nd. However on corner exit in 1st or 2nd if I stab the throttle it'll slide, 3rd gear corners I can stab the throttle and it wont break traction. Take abuse EXTREMELY well. After 12000km, a few burnouts, a few drag race days, and lots of spirited driving they've only lost 1/32 of tread depth. I think they will become dry before the actual tread wears out. I think next time I will move up a tire category to max performance summer (great wet/dry traction, ok tread life) or extreme performance summer (great dry traction, ok wet, ok tread life). After driving on Goodyear Eagle F1 (one of the lower rated tires in Max performance summer category) you can tell the difference from the compromises made. (these are Ultra Performance Summers which offer ok traction in wet/dry but great tread life). Overall good for the money and a daily driver car.

These tires have extremely hard sidewalls, they were quite difficult for the tire shop to mount. And this is then felt in driving as well. If you want something quite aggressive and for a mix of street and autocross, this is possibly a good tire for you. But compared to the Pirelli's that I had before, these things are a very rough ride, and very noisy. Even more road noise than my full winter tires. They are a very good price, but I would not buy these again for myself.

Installed these on my 2018 Audi RS3. 255/35/19. I absolutely love them. Road noise is minimal, handles unbelievably well, wet traction is through the roof. I highly recommend these tires. Plus talk about bang for your buck! They could honestly charge double the price.

Peter Parker 11-03-2019

A great tire for it's price range but a little slippery on quick stops. Compared to my older Michelin Pilot A/S 3's. There will be some times that someone will cut you off or cause you to do an unexpected stoppage so this is the only reason why I gave it 4 stars because on my A/S 3's it would just stop! As for acceleration, corner grip it's very comparable to my old tires and is actually better in colder weather grip than the A/S 3's because I usually put my summers on March which also means I was able to run them until late November as long as there's no snow on the roads. Overall I will keep using these tires on my 2016 S550 and very happy with them considering they are the best lower priced tires you can get out there! My Michelin's cost me over $1600+ and the Indy"s under $1000 with a 5% discount code and including delivery to my door!

Mike 21-07-2017

Bought these for my 2017 Subaru WRX STi. Amazing tire in every aspect! You can not beat the price for what these tires are capabable of. I like them way more then the stock Dunlops and even more then the Michelin Pilot Super Sports I've run in the past! These tires work better then any other in wet/rainy conditions and handle excellent in hot/dry temps! Do yourself a favor and pick these tires up!
