These replaced the OEM RFTs so much better ride comfort. Noise on good roads is mimimal, but on poor roads it is very noticable. Wet traction is outstanding. Dry traction is excellent. Cornering is excellent, braking is excellent. At this mileage the front tires look almost new, but I was into the wear bars on the passenger (drive) side rear and only about 1/32 on the other (LSD installed last November). I do like to accellerate thru 1, 2 and 3 when I get the chance, and push thru corners when its safe, but that is not an everyday occurance. Will do another set of rears and then go to a non-staggered setup.
