Haven't read the other responses yet, but I have them on my 96 Camry SE V6 in a "Plus Zero" size of 215-60-15 (up from stock 205-65-15) and am very pleased overall with them, esp noise and ride. I had to give up a set of Yokohama AVS-4Vs due to a misalignment problem which started an irretrievable bad tire wear pattern... So, a local dealer was nice enough to cut me a deal on these Pirellis. Though same size and rating (V), I am dissapointed in the handling somewhat compared with the Yokos, but was informed that they are a notch down in "category" from all-season high performance (Yokos) to all season ("performance") Touring, with the implied trade-offs I've experienced. The other route to have gone would be the Dunlop SP4000s (said to be somewhat of a cross between the aforementioned two) or the Michelin XGT-V4, which would have provided the Yoko's performance and then some--with said-to-be quieter tread..but alas, the Michs were considerably higher priced than any of the others, perhaps save the Dunlops.
