OP requested information on just summer tires. So I asked, baking sun, little rain.
Mine are lasting fine I think. I expect to get 25-30K out of them, but according to Robo, when they start to wear, they do wear at a quicker pace. He got 20K out of his.
No one that I remember has listed wear index was set. Just what was the best summer tire. I drive them back to back on occasion and it is not close, not even remotely close. I also drove them from SoCal to Gunnison, Colorado in a monsoon situation. I was terribly worried about the wet weather action of the tire. I never had a problem, no hydro planning. And hooked up great
After reading the article, the guy said they were better than any all season tire he had driven in the rain. These are fantastic tires, they cost about as much as the Michelins but for summer driving, really much better. They work well at warm temperatures, but get below 50, they become hard and rough. I seldom have to drive in that kind of weather so they are perfect for me.
I put a set of these on the Mallett, larger than stock and they have calmed the beast down considerably. I honestly would not drive it with the PSS on it.
These will make you feel safer in the car, but they will also make you test yourself and your car's limits. You get the feeling there isn't a corner you can not fly thru. Maybe not so good idea all the time.
I will not buy anything else until it is proven that something is better or comparative.
