My-02 are really good! The sidewalls aren't really that soft. The performance & grip in wet surface is top notch! Tyre-noise is also minimal. And above all, it's not that expensive as say Michelin or Continentals. At Pondy, it was ~Rs5400 per tyre. Can't comment about the life expectancy, as it's been only 1500kms since I swapped from stock GT3's.
