But, with all of that said, the V12s are still a good value tire when you consider price but there is a reason they are $400 less than the PSS (and it isn't just brand premium).
I'm sure the Hankooks ride better though, which is a positive for those who don't push their cars as hard.
I really like the performance of my PSS but they do still ride somewhat harsh on bad streets, pretty much in line with other max performance tires.
