My brother put them on his 2002 BMW 330I. He loves them and the rest of the BMW guys from the snowfrontier give nothing but accolades for them.

We have them on the SSEi and they are awesome in any driving condition. Dry pavement, snow, rain, you name it. I would recommend them over just about any tire for the price. We got about 6-8 inches of snow last night/this morning and its been going through it like a tank all day. You will not be dissapointed.

Glad to here it. They would have come in real handy today. My rear fender and a gaurdrail almost had an intimate encounter today on my way to work in the middle of white-out conditions at 8 am.

I just got mine earlier this month and I really like them, haven't driven with them in the snow yet but they were really good in heavy rain. Goto tirerack.com, they did a test with them, the stock Goodyears and a couple of others.

Finally got them on today. I can feel the sidewalls flex more than the Pilot Sports did, but they are QUIET AS HELL!! In my short drive, the traction seems good enough. They are so quiet that I can really hear my tranny mounts popping more than I thought they did, like now I hear them on the highway.

I personally endorse the Falcon Zeix'* that I have on my Bonnie. They're quiet, smooth, and grip like a freakin' gekko. Every piece of literature I found on them puts them a very small notch behind the P-Zero Neroes on dry pavement, ahead on wet pavement, WAY lower on price.
When I got mine from Sears, I paid $408 mounted and out the door. I did pay another $39 for the road-hazard warranty, and also another $20 to NTB because Sears' balancing machine is a piece of crap, but that'* still ALOT cheaper than the Neroes.

Sorry to blow the dust off this, but...

I happened to look at my tires today renoticed the red dots on the sidewalls that I previously assumed meant "this is the outside wall", being that they are uni-side, not unidirectional, but the same side needs to point out because the shoulders are not the same on both sides. I got to thinking. Is the red dot there to indicate the lightest point and that the valve stem should be aligned with it? I've heard of this type of marking before, but didn't give it prior thought.
