Huge difference over the OEM Dunlops. Amazing grip, quiet on the road and comfortable without the jarring feeling you get from a performance suspension. Easily the very best tire that I have ever put on my car. I work in the tire industry so I got to compare against Kumho, Hankook, Goodyear and Bridgestone. This is worth every penny more that I had to spend and I cannot see putting any other brand on my car.
