Great tires for training with the occasional race thrown in. I put 2K miles on these easily without any problems.

These tires are bomb...
These tires are bomb proof - I've had two flats with them but they have been slashed up with glass shards, slivers of metal, bits of shale, the works and they have held up to most of it without trouble over two seasons of commuting.Definite worth it for commuting on debris laden roads.

Marginal at this point
These tires are too big for the rim. You have to manually center them when you blow up the tire. The first one I put on I blew out the tube.

I commute three to four times a week to work. I've had three flats within a month. Tiny rocks and metal pieces succeeded to puncture the tube (my tires were fully blown).

Beautiful, sticky tire. Ignore 120 PSI!
These tires look and feel great. They have a wonderful rolling resistance and felt like a definite upgrade over the Continental Gatorskins I pulled off just prior to put them on. At this price, I was in love.

Over the next few weeks I fell steadily into wary like. Some of it must be dumb luck but I got three (!) puncture flats in two weeks. Some of that puncturability must have been evolved from the same buttery consistency which gave it such a smooth ride. The terrifying culmination was a rear wheel blowout through the tread (!) after less than 500 miles or wear. It was an inch and a half long tear. I'm just glad it happened at about 10 mph on a back neighborhood street.

I pulled these off, threw the good one on the garage wall as an emergency spare and vowed never to run them again.

Well, my vows aren't very good/that emergency situation came up a few months later. And I actually put this tire back on my bike. But instead of running it at the recommended max of 120....I just ran it at 100 psi. I wanted to minimize the chances of that frightening blowout. It's been a few weeks. No punctures. No blow outs. The ride is still great, but I can feel (with my fingers) the tread starting to flatten out. Overall this suggests the plusses and minuses of a soft compound.

Assessing tires is so hard because there are a number of random factors associated with wear. But it appears these are good tires for moderate total mileage, moderate price, good ride, minimal puncture resistance. But just that, nothing more.

PROS: Rolling Resistance, value, Looks

CONS: Do Not Run At 120 Psi, Puncture resistance

Nice sticky tire...
Nice sticky tire until the kevlar bead rips out of the casing on the rear, resulting in a sudden and violent loss of tire pressure.
