BFG G-Sport Comp 2's

Just picked up a set of 4 today (245/40/18 and 275/35/18). So far, I'm impressed with the dry capabilities, but I've only put about 20-30 miles on them. They replaced a set of R-S3's that I was happy with, but they didn't last nearly as long as I would have liked....I suppose that's what I get for picking up a set of track tires. I'll post up pics shortly and keep this thread updated for anyone interested.

What's the latest?

How are the tires holding up? How quiet and comfortable is the ride on these?

So far, so good. They're wearing well, and road noise is almost nonexistent. Ride isn't harsh, but I'm driving in SoCal roads, so I'm used to a different kind of harshness.

So far, I have no qualms about recommending them to people.

Would you consider them as soft as typical all seasons (Continental DW/DWS) and less aggressive summers (Hankook V12 Evo), or are they still similar to Star Specs and R-S3s?

How is wet traction?

Link to an "introductory drive" of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 compared to some similar tires including the Hankook Ventus V12 EVO :

Follow-up to this. Wet traction has proved very, very good, and I'm on stock 193M's @ 18". I would put these in line with the RS-3's (which I had previously, so I have a pretty solid comparison...they're actually the tires I had on the car before I put these on).
