Excellent grip. Very soft tire. Of course, because they're so soft, they don't last very long. Not good for someone with a long commute. My commute from MD to VA is about 45 miles one-way and the front tires have, in two months, shown a good bit of wear. I also make frequent trips to NY. I must admit that I can't totally blame the tires for their wear, because I just replaced my bad radius rod bushings. I have the 205/40/16s. Good in rain too. Quiet tire, as well. I will probably buy another set when these have worn down. I love the grip. Before these, I had the Nitto NeoGens which were nice. But, the Paradas are the best tires I've had on my car.
