I was told there was no way you could chirp this tire because it is so sticky... but I chirped it in 2nd gear : )

That being said, I would say it is a good tire for grip but not that great in wear and noise....

They are loud and they roll a little when you push them hard, If you need 18's or smaller sizes I would get Dunlop Z1 Star Specs

I have them on my 19" Breytons and love them. Yes, they do have some road noise but it's not as bad people make them out to be. They are a great tire, great traction, good tread life. I have had them on 2 sets of 19" wheels for my older VW GTI, a set of 18" wheels on my WRX and now on my BMW. I don't think I'd get another tire...

Agreed!

But for 19" without getting a second mortgage, go for the KDW's

Gary thanks for asking but seeing that this thread was so old I was just curious if those were still made. I just picked up some Michelin PSS's .

Just in some sizes, most are not being made anymore.

They were nice on my 350z, def a really noisy tire though. Great for spirited driving and drag strip. Close to same tread pattern as there drag radial just not as soft of compound.
