These tires are awful on this car. They do not steer correctly, they feel heavy and thick. Turn in is slow and non linear, they do not turn in at all at first then pull quickly to the side. The on center feel is sloppy and not precise. They require constant correction to stay in a straight line and tram line horribly, darting all over the lane. But they do not make any more noise than any other tire, drive smooth on smooth roads and terribly on poor ones.

I admit once in a corner they held a line and were easily corrected. Stopping in a straight line was fast and hard. Really impressive.

But I found them dangerous in traffic because of the wandering in the lane, they make driving the car no fun. I would never recommend them to anyone and will not ever purchase them again. Replaced them with 225 45 18 Primacy MXM4's and am happy again with my car.
