For 85% of driving this tire is fine, but if you want to drive more spirited, be forewarned. You can feel the flex of the sidewall entering curves...so in a sense you steer left or right and you can feel the load shift on the tire, then the steering input takes effect. Not confidence inspiring. These replaced Goodyear OEM RS-A's. They had a much lower treadwear rating and higher price, but maybe now I know why.
