Sorry you didn't like my advice. If all the information on the interweb hasn't afforded enough information for you to make a decision, asking the same questions that have been answered hundreds of times won't help you either. It seems like you have done your research, but want someone else to make the final decision for you. For the minimal cost, time, and effort of installing a set of tires, I personally, would rather try them and get first hand knowledge. Then I know how they work for me, my riding style, the conditions in which I ride. Who will you blame if you get them and you don't like them? The people who lied to you and offered useless comments on the forum? The safety issue is really a cop out in my book. If the idea that a set of mass marketed tires, used by scores of (still living) people, with good reviews by many of the members of this forum, will have a significant impact on ones safety is preposterous. So, my useless, to you, comment still stands. Try them and see if you like them.
And yes, I have used these tires and like them for my riding style. My next set will be the 804/805 combination. And if I don't like them I will blame "Big B" for leading me astray.
