this is the most comfortable tire i have yet to run in a 18. has a level of comfort and still lets you feel like your in a sports car without cringing every time you hit a bump. holds the car out of the hole and exceeded my expectations in the corners. was running hankooks before and the ride quality suffers too much. normally with the t/a's i have always ran them on a 15in wheel was curious to see them on this car and ended up being pleased with them. it may not be the zenith of performance tires but you get a lot more tire than you pay for.
