Having been through tons of makes over the years trying to chase my tyre size - Goodyear F1, Avon Rainsport, Falken, Toyo, Yoko to name a few. I actually am impressed by these Marangonis (please dont stop my tyre size AGAIN xxx).
Anyhoos, two friends on different cars petrol/Diesel (tuned) have agreed that these over all work better than the old Goodyear Eagle F1 (which were better than the newer GDS3, the diesel mate even had both on at changes).
Dry grip excellent & wet grip control very good indeed.
The fact they come from racing development does show. They also have an excellent tread pattern that copes very well with changes in direction, torqy front wheel drives & adverse conditions - icy, deep wet, snow even (really... I personally prefer V tread patterns for norm road tyres getting into extreme conditions - not just a fancy, proven).
I could go on & list the other qualities as per rating, but suffice you should not be disappointed (if you are as one is... I'd really love to know what tyre you rate best...really). Anyhoos - after 2 years standing the tyres this time round had gotten a tad hard on my Hyundai F2 98 Coupe - and this is what really got me, driven like an track idiot.... they still grip & handle excellently. Wear... He he gooood. Don't know how they do it & have known other like tyres remodled to wear quicker (though not left 2 years, lol).
I do not care if the price goes up (fingers crossed) But as long as they don't stop making 225 45 16 (or 225 40 16 which they DID stop ...grrr) I'll be a happy man. Yep I even took a tyre size adjustment not to change my tyre choice again. Maybe these are not everyones cupper - but I recommend a try highly. That's me out!

Writing about the Vredestein Sportrac 3 given 77% (195-50-15-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 25000 spirited miles
Superb response in dry and wet conditions even at cold weather and snow! I've driven almost 25000 miles and the tires will last at least 10000 more as rear tires. However after 25000 the response is not as good as with new tires but still better than most new tires. If you like drag races Sportrac 3 RULEZ! The acceleration is amazing.

The only negative thing is that these tires don't have board protector and you may harm on off road conditions like the roads in Bulgaria :(

Writing about the Fulda Carat Progresso given 79% (205-55-16-H)
Driving on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
I had this tyres on my Hyundai Coupe for 4,5 yrs. Managed to get out of them ~45,000 km which is good (every season changed front to back). Now I can still use the rear ones for one more season (bearly). Wasn's impressed with the grip on the dry, and on the wet the grip was terrible. Felt unsecure when it rained. The noise they make is not bad. Fuel consumption was low. If they had better performance on the wet I would buy them again... Probably will exchange them for Uniroyal Rain Expert next month, when I do I'll post a comparison under Uniroyal. Hope I make a good choice.

Writing about the Nankang NS2 given 90% (205-50-15-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 easy going miles
already 20k miles on them, and the question is : whoah, will they die someday ?

I take some curves at 120mph without any trouble, some turn-around at 45mph, it always gripped on the dry or semi-wet road.
When it comes to wet, it's okay, never had any trouble with them. Anyway, it's miles better than my old Michelin Energy...
You can treat them badly, it seems that they just like it.

Anyway, i will definately buy these again... eerrr actually i had to buy 2 of them this morning, an {][@#{^ killed my front right tyre with a screw this weekend...
