An excellent start, the 245/40/17 fit on stock setup. Obviously brand new but quiet comfortable ride so far, especially as a performance tire. I feel/hear no difference between my all-season touring tires. Except when it comes to pushing the limits then they shine. Wet or Dry. When downpouring they hold elevated highway speeds with great confidence. At track it was wet but no rain, still very confident (when dry felt so close to R-comps I had previously) At autocross I'm competing at stock levels with great times thanks to the tires.
