>Wet - 7/10
Comfort - 10/10
Noise - 10/10
Tread Design - 7/10
Longevity - N/A
Overall (un-weighted) average: 8.6 (References: PS2 - 9.5, Continental CS3 - 8, Nitto Invo - 9)
This is actually very accurate to Tire Rack's website.
At the end of the day, I have found that these are great tires for the price. If you are looking for a budget tire that is an above average performer, while not sacrificing comfort or noise level, this might be the tire for you.
-Good performance (wet/dry).
-Variety of sizes.
-Very comfortable on rough roads.
-Slightly less responsive.
-Tread design isn't the most appealing / could cause faster tread wear.
Lane I agree with your assesment, I have the Nitto Invos in the 255/35/19 front and 285/30/19 found them to be better than the CS3s but obviously not as good as the PS2s, like them for the money though. Burned through the rears pretty quick (Invos).
