Firstly I want to say that this tires some things right...but more wrong! I bought these after reading all of the glowing reviews about the comfort and noise levels being very good with these tires. I have to say they are good...up to about 50mph, then all -------- breaks loose! Noise, tramlining, rough, and squirmy?!? I had to slow to 70mph because the car would vibrate so much. Lot's of hopping at highway speed...which I hear can happen on a Golf VI on 18's unless the tires are right. These tires were put on after a factory VW alignment and a Hunter road force balance so I know it wasn't that. I really wish these tires had the highway manners that they had at low speed because they were awesome cruising around city streets. Anyway, I ordered some Michelin AS/3's so we will see what happens when these go on.
