I've run mine for 13k miles and they are awesome. I have them in 255/45/20 wrapped in black painted SRT replicas from Discount Tire. They aren't crazy high performance like Vreds, but they perform well and for the price, you can't go wrong. I can attest to their hydroplaning resistance even though they are wide.

Unfortunately they are now sitting in the garage. Had to put the stock wheels back on with the Firestone Winterforce for the cold months. Ugh, the loss of performance was instantly noticeable.

Very nice and quiet for cruising in the car. A lot quieter than my eagle f1s. Performance they suck though. Wheel hop when launching hard.

OP has a Daytona and I have an R/T so our performance is more closely matched than your SuperBee.

I wouldn't say the performance sucks for what you pay, it's just not what is necessary for your vehicle to maintain traction.

But if OP is looking into new shoes, the F1s are currently only $8 per tire more on Discount Tire. The only trade-off would be noise and the v12 received better ratings than the F1s from purchasers on that site.

no value wise they were great, I had all four tires mounted and balance for under 700 bucks, for 300 when you can vreds, to me thats worth it. However If you do a lot of cruising the hankook is a very quiet tire that was the best feature to me about the tire. I bought it for wear rate too but I only had the tire on for 3k before i got rid of the 09 I had. Its not a terrible tire if you don't drive your car HARD. If you do I personally would suggest the OP would look else wear. just my 2 cents

I have some good year eagle ones on there now, not a lot of tread left, but if I give any kind of sudden throttle ( like trying to hurry up and pull out of a parking lot ) they will light up, with traction control on. And I do drive pretty hard when givin the chance but I need something with alot of grip

I had them on my R/T and I thought they were great, especially for the money. Excellent handling in the rain, too.
