I got to fully test the Cosmo MMs out fully today on my way to work in the rain. It was raining pretty steady and my drive is 90% highway. Going straight at 75 MPH was no problem. Around some bends it felt kinda loose. At 70 MPH it was pretty much solid. AT some points I dropped it to 65 MPH and they held perfectly. This was steady rain. Not a deluge but not a sprinkle. And it was heavy at some points. It didn't feel as steady as the DWS tires I had on my SS years ago felt. But they did well.

On that note my 2 front PS4S tires arrived and will be going to the shop in the morning. I'll be having all 4 replaced either tomorrow or Wednesday. It depends on how I feel after this 16 hour shift.

Here is a cool pic...my HC has a little emblem of a HC in the bottom left corner of the windshield.

Tires were waiting for me when I got home in the morning and I took the car to the shop in the afternoon. The install went easy. The mechanic remarked that these were easier to do than the Cosmo MMs even tho these are 30s and the MMs are 40s. The PS4S tires have a softer sidewall. Anyway everything went well.

My first impressions are that these are really good tires. I thought the stock tires were great when they were brand new. I would put these right up there with them. But these might grip better in wet and cold conditions. Time will tell once I get some more seat time with them. I drove the ZL1 to work tonight and the tires handle very well. It was not raining tonight but the roads were a little wet. Still tho I had no problems at 75-80 MPH. I think these were a good buy!!

Next up...I think I'm gonna order some LTs this weekend. I'm gonna go with 2" catless TSPs. That is, if they will work with my MBRP catback. I'll probably have to do some cutting and fitting.

Although I initially wanted to do the LTs with the blower swap in one shot I kinda changed my mind and decided to do it as a stand alone mod. I always been a fan of seeing how each individual mod improves a car so that is the driving force. I'll go with a custom tune as well. If I do get them this week then I'll have to wait a couple weeks to do the install as I'll be out of the country next week and am working every night straight until I leave. Stay tuned for that.

That is one massive stack of rubber! If you feel they grip good now, they will probably feel like glue once it warms up.

That's the way I usually did my mods when I had a car worth modding. Always wanted to see how each individual mod helped out the car.

Very nice rubber indeed. Hardly any tire noise. I have 285's in the rear and they don't hook even at my lesser power (will try the Toyos come spring), but you'll see how incredibly good their wet traction is. I feel the softer sidewall makes them a little less sharp in turns, yet given the amount of wet and rainy days we seem to be getting lately, these are pretty much a slam dunk.

Yeah, I need to do better at the drag strip and hope for these to be somewhat streetable, too. Will move the 285/35/20 PS4S to the front and use the R888R's for the rear. If this doesn't work out, I'll go back to PS4S all around.

Did you get a break in the weather to really give them a good test?
