subjective comments regarding "feel" and wear for a large group of people in a large variety of cars and a large variety of tires and tire sizes is a pretty random data set from which you can gain nothing. Remember, 80% of drivers think that they are better than 80% of drivers. that is to say that people don't know sheet about how their cars are "handling" even if they think they do. Having everyone here run a series of tests on their cars with exact parameters and data collection devices would tell you something. Otherwise its like saying "i put a cyclone in my air intake and it FEELS like i'm getting better milage!"

Anybody read that article i posted? It is pretty much indicative of what everyone who LEARNS how to maximize grip agrees on. Go to a performance school or read up on a performace guide on the net somewhere.
