Tires provide a very quiet and comfortable ride. The roads in Norfolk make a back country logging road seem luxurius and the new tires soak up the bumps with a muted/confidence inspiring thud. Dry and wet traction are excellent. I was initially disappointed with initial turn-in feel but after I raised tire pressure from 32 psi to 36 psi, steering response improved dramatically. Steering feel is still not as sharp as a dedicated summer tire but it is definitely entertaining and predicatable. Maximum steady state grip is fantastic!
