Tire Pros

They look good.

Tire Cons

Wet driving is horrible.

I like these tires on dry roads; however, on wet roads I doubt you'll grip at all. I have a 2011 Genesis Coupe Track 3.8 and I hydroplane (at normal speed limits) a lot and wet roads feel unpredictable. Getting on the highway the other night I punched it from a 10-20mph roll and when I hit 2nd it broke sideways. Although it was fun it; it makes me want to drive like I do in the snow when it rains.
