Just put these tires on today and drove straight from Washington DC to Norfolk. First impression: quiet, smooth, and comfortable. I have had Goodyear Eagke F1's and Yokohama 4ws's on my car and these continentals have provided a more refined-feeling ride. Having only 200 ,Ike's on the tires makes this review not hold much weight but I thought providing a first impression review may be helpful to some. I have not yet performed any spirited driving but am hopeful they will be nice based on other reviews.
