This is a different car with these new shoes. The car corners far better then before due to the stiffer side walls, its ride is far quieter and much more comfortable. How this tire will wear is yet to be determined. The only negative I have found is gas mileage. I have driven to and from Florida 4 times averaging 29+ MPG. This trip averaged 26+ MPG, over 10% less.The OE tires were Michelin MXV4, (worn out in 28,000 miles).
