Like I said, they really butchered their site.
The tires handle great in the dry, o.k. in light rain, and I was getting some front hydroplaning in very heavy rain. They are about the same weight as a Hoosier, a lot lighter than the Yokos. I'm assuming the high price is due to the weak dollar, I paid about $350 ea. a few years back.
I have a set of 255 & 315/17's as a back up set. They don't right to me, but at $500 p/tire I'll deal with it.

I think Yoko still does a small yearly run of their 285/40/15's, but finding out when is another story.

Here is a shot of the 295/15's on 11x15's compared to the Goodyear 315/35/17's on 11x17's.
