Good, my first pair lasted 17,000 on the front, now on all 4 corners. A lot quieter than the Bridgestones too and £135 a corner slightly more expensive but I think worth it.

Probably end up going with these when i need a change in a couple of months...

Can anyone with the Goodyear Asymmetric 2s tell me what the noise levels are like with these tyres?  I have Potenzas on my GTD currently and they are deafening.  I am eyeing up a set of Assymmetric 2s as a replacement, despite the Potenzas not being fully worn, and the only thing that's holding me back is the noise level - I don't want to spend £400 or so on new tyres for them to be as bad as the current ones.

I have Bridgestone potenza S001's and they're quite harsh, love the grip though, find them quiet on the road and motorway too

Still can't see why everyone raves about the pilot 3's. Can someone explain why they never come out top of any comparisons but everyone thinks they are the best tyre since sliced bread.
