Just had them fitted today.

I think it is always difficult to compare a worn set of any tires to a new
set of another brand ..but... in spite of the pressures being lower than
they should have been after fitting (32/40) [a fact I only discovered when
I got home - next time I will take my gauge with me] I went looking for
every bit of overbanding, groove, white line I could find and they did not
wiggle or deviate a bit.  As they haven't been scrubbed in yet I haven't
tried to get rid of the the 'whiskers' but they seem OK to me.  However,
living in the UK it is wet weather performance I will be most interested
in since I think that almost any brand is capable of holding out all I can
ask of it in the dry.
