This came with the CX-9 Grand Touring vehicle as factory tires, overall it handles great on the highway mountain roads of Colorado (Zoom Zoom). Maintaining its balance through 16K miles was not a problem, had them checked twice and they were fine, high speed tested them as well @ 125 mph, no issue! The only negative I can give, is that on wet roads if you hit some water pockets on the highway at 55 mph, they did hydroplane and these are new tires. Had no chance to snow test them, but with the water issue I feel I wont be giving them a chance, I am going to purchase snow tires instead. I would have expected a higher tread wear out of the tires (260), but it is a trade off for high performance, but Bridgestone definately needs to work on the hydroplaning issue at such slow speeds.
