Boy, this is a lot better than my old Z3. Maybe it's my imagination, but the SSR stayed firm on the road. The Z3 wanted to get squirrely and hydroplane.

I was afraid the fancy tires wouldn't get good traction in the rain. But it seems they handled it fine.

And the inside didn't steam up, like ragtops do in the rain.

Rain

These tires stick well in the rain....until you hit about 25k on them, then they will start slicking up. The tread on the tire is still good at 37k, but I'm getting ready to replace them any way.

Have you looked at the run-flats? When I replace mine I'll probably go with run flats with a lot more tread.

Let me know if you can find run flats to fit - the only ones I have found would required dropping back to 17 fronts and 18 rears, and one possibility for 18 fronts and 19 rears - nothing remotely close to the 19s and 20s on the truck now.

They are good in the snow also

Got mine last September and hit a snowstorm in October coming home from Laughlin, Neveda. Had about 6 inches of snow on the road and 50-60 with no slipping or sliding.
