I got my first full set of these in the spring of 06, factory 245/45/17 size. I just got my first replacement pair at a slightly upgraded size of 255/40/17, and they are perfect! Just a touch wider and a touch shorter. I beat the heck out of my last set, they ended up lasting about 20,000 miles or so, with a few trips to the drag and a bunch of burnouts and fast takeoffs in between. Amazing in the rain (that could be the best part, not only are they great dry, but they really shine when it's wet). very aggressive and deep tread pattern, I get little to NO road noise. Amazing tires new. Might get better sidewalls on other tires, just double the price. I won't buy another tire until I can't find these anymore. Really.
I bought a set of these tires for a Lexus IS250 I used to have. They are great tires overall, I enjoyed the handling and security these tires offered me. They were also very quiet given they were W rated tires and low profile 18 inchers. I also got a great deal on them. Excellent alternative if you do not want to spend close to or over $1,000 dollars for a brand name tire
