My apologies for not responding earlier.
Since my last post, I picked-up a nail in the front right tire. The front left had been replaced by the previous owner, so the front tires were mis-matched in terms of wear. The front right was in the red tread-wise, so I decided to replace the fronts as well with PS A/S 3s.
I have driven with them in snow and heavy rain and they have considerably improved the handling. The car feels solid and I haven't had an issue with hydroplaning (the rains have been heavy enough for that to be an issue). A slight increase in road noise and a firmer ride, so I do feel the road a bit more. In all, I am happy with them as Beast is an every day driving machine. Beast originally had P-Zeros and I wouldn't wish to have driven in that weather over the last month with those on the car.
I will see how well they wear over the next year or so.
