I bought these due to the 130mph H speed rating being that's around where my limiter is set as well as the snow and rain conditions we have out here in Ohio. I hate driving in the rain especially when I hit those deep puddles on the freeway and hear these are supposed to cut through rain like butter. I've only had them for a day and so far experience they stop on a dime going from an icy parking lot to a side street as well as tear up to 100mph while changing lanes on a freeway in 18 degree weather. I love these tires! A bit a road noise but manageable. I have a cold air intake so used to some noise anyway.
