Strengths:    Great wet tyre.

Weaknesses:    No longer available

Bottom Line:   
If run at the right pressure and bed them in properly I've found these are the best wet weather tyre I've tried. I run the front at 4bar in the wet and they handle perfectly. Good in the dry too but it's the wet where they excel. You have to rub the tread off them for a while before they work. It's the compound and construction that is good not the tread. Miles better than a GP 4000. I wouldn't know about puncture resistance as I've never had one personally with these tyres.

Strengths:    They are not too difficult to get onto my rims, good overall performance in mixed weather conditions.

Weaknesses:    Puncture magnets, these tyres are useless on real world roads where thorns, pot holes and glass are a constant problem, also they do not fit my rims properly, getting the beading to sit into the rim channel is often problematic.

Bottom Line:   
This tyre is not expensive for a reason, it is rubbish, the walls of the tyre are really thin and do not offer much in the way of resistance to punctures against anything, constant road side repairs has forced to switch back to the generic chinese tyres my bike came with.

Strengths:    Super smooth, no flats

Weaknesses:    Can't find them anymore

Bottom Line:   
These tires are the bomb baby. Some of the smoothest rolling tires I have ridden. I use them on an old touring bike/commuter and have zero flats. My other commuter (bontrager t1 tires) has had 4 flats from glass in the last 2 months.

Strengths:    Handle great in wet or dry, on all road surface including dirt and gravel.

Weaknesses:    At high psi they wear too quickly and fall apart.

Bottom Line:   
Got these with the bike when I purchased it used from a dealer rep in Oklahoma. They are fine for commuting, but have been using them for training lately at very high pressures and they just don't hold up. 110-115psi and the tread is breaking off and wearing quickly. Already need to replace them. Commute on them at lower psi (90-100) and they were great, but not suitable for too much more.
