Are you talking about the Exclaim UHP?

I ran them in 235/45/17 (on 17x7.5 +48). The compound feels pretty soft to the touch, you can squish the tread around with your finger. However they do grip pretty well in most conditions.

I am running 225/55/17 UHPs with 06 WRX wheels and run a 5mm spacer in the rear to keep from rubbing on the strut. They have been great tires for the past 2 summers!
