In the one day where it was bone dry, I could have eaten anyone who dared to take me on! That's how confident I am in them.

Who cares if they will only last 5k miles. I already got another set
Nice!! It is always nice to get to the point where you are really confident in your tires.

In terms of wet braking, I had one of the closest calls ever when a fellow pulled out into the left lane on the autobahn without looking. This literally was a matter of split seconds, I dove onto the ABS since I was just wearing off speed before what I thought was certain impact. The car slowed like a ship dipping out of warp to just an eternal meter or two from his bumper with me absolutely standing on the horn. I rubbed off about 100kmph+ with no sliding or loss of control at all on a section of full wash out wet road (the kind that normally causes split second hydroplaning.) Hats off to the suspension, electronics, and tires. Fraction of second.

Sorry for the story, but these tires are more than ok in the rain.
Wow that was a close call. Glad it turned out the way it did.
