Tire Pros

Very surprising amount of traction. Price.

Tire Cons

None Provided

Great tire for the money. Was very surprised in the amount of traction in both wet and dry. With such large blocks on the treads was anticipating some hydro-planing in heavy rain but have not had any. The Dry traction was the much better than I expected for the ratings given and will for sure be buying again in the future.

Tire Pros

EVERYTHING!

Tire Cons

NONE!

I've owned two previous sets of these tires on sports cars and did "aggressive driving" with all of them. For the price, these tires are really sticky after they've been broken in (about a thousand miles). Quiet, solid, great in hard corners. Real fun to push the limits on. Only have 500 miles on the latest set but still as happy with them as before.

Tire Pros

Low price, soft ride, quiet ride, sticks to the road

Tire Cons

The tradeoff for low price is a relatively low treadwear rating

As a "spirited" driver, I like the stickiness of these tires. I drive my Mini year round, so I only put about 5,000 miles on my summer tires per year, and use winter tires the rest of the year. So I got 5 years out of my first set of Nitto Neo Gens, and I'm on my second set now. These tires can handle the hard cornering, but they ride comfortably. When driving aggressively with other members of the Mini club on twisty roads, these tires can stand up to tires that cost twice the price.
