Wet traction was average when new. Cornering was OK. Price was competitive. Yes, I do drive fairly aggressively in my minivan... I travel lots of freeway and back country windy roads which put the traction to the test.
Some weird whining noise at certain speeds from the tread pattern which was very noticeable on paint lines. After 15,000 - 20,000 miles this tire had about half of the original tread life still left, but wet traction was greatly reduced. Tires started to squeal in sharp low-speed turns such as in parking lots. Light snow traction was really poor. Any "aggressive" cornering even on dry pavement caused traction control to intrude. I have purchased many tires for many different cars from Toyo in the past due to their low cost. However, I am convinced that they do not use the proper compounds in the tires to keep them pliable throughout their entire life. It seems like after 40%-50% of tread wear is reached (approximately 2 years of driving on these tires) they become hard and plastic like causing them to have much less traction. After trying other brands, I now know that some more premium brands cost about double the price of Toyo, but they maintain very good grip and cornering ability all the way to the tread wear indicators after 50,000+ miles. This makes them about the same price per mile without the worry of slowly losing performance over time.

These are the best tires I have ever owned.
Long tread life, look good, very durable, good in snow and ice (especially if siped), great dry weather traction, quiet and smooth. Realitively affordable considering the long life and all around performance. I would have to say wet weather traction is pretty average. The tire has excellent hydroplaning resistance, but the harder compound (it is a 70K mile tire) tends to make lightly wet surfaces provide less gripping power, especially during spirited take offs.
As an all season tire, there probably aren't too many out there with the number of pros these tires have, except maybe from Toyo themselves in another model tire.
I do a great deal of highway driving, and these tires wear super slow, but still offer benefits the cheaper, and more sticky tires do without any major sacrifices.
Be sure to get these tires siped, and your ice and snow traction will improve even further.
Stellar tires that I highly recommend!
