    Used them many times always been really good in the wet, decent grip in the dry although the last set which was on my A3 started to wear all out of shape and caused a ridiculous droning noise (similar to a wheel bearing going). I had them changed and the droning was gone.

    I was paying £100 per corner, balanced and fitted (no idea if this is a good price or not).

    Hold off.... Goodyear Efficient Grips are the biz for grip in the wet and longevity...
    In 20k miles, tyres on my car have lost about 2.5mm...

    Good grip but only been on for a couple of weeks so cant comment on wear.

    Very impressed with these tyres, have them on the wifes car, wet and dry grip is very good and they are a great price too.
