I bought these for a Ford mondeo ST (225 40 28) and loved the grip but even with frequent allignment and balancing they always seemed to fail with very annoying blowouts...

Run 2 sets of them on my 1er. No issues. Also had the Vorti. I like the rear traction of the Sessanta better. Sidewall stability of the Vorti is superior though.

Never had any blowouts like what Retro Pug is suggesting. Balancing and alignment has nothing to do with that either. I think he needs to stop running over curbs.

I ran S. On e92 and V. On e90. Great performance tires. On HPDE weekend V's were better. Wet traction excellent for both

these were popular on the 350z at a point. I had run a set, and didn't have any issues. but I was auto-xing on my street tires on the time and the grip was just alright.

Wow! This is an old thread brought back to life. These tires are so outdated at this point.
