Scions are loud inside anyway, so if you get a quiet tire, you notice it immediately. These are the best I've used that way...hands down.The cars' not fast, but being lowered, swaybars, etc, it sticks VERY WELL w/ these tires with NO lean. Yokahamas S were slightly better, but NOISY. Treadwear is looking very good thus far. Again...also the best I've seen thus far. Wish you were still doing the rebate.....I'd buy another set right now, just to have them when that time comes again (replacement).
