Any compliance I gained with the new shocks initially seemed to have been lost with the installation of these tires. On the bright side, the car genuinely felt more eager to do everything. The tires do an excellent job of communicating what the road is doing. To my surprise, this is the first part I've installed that actually makes the car "feel" faster. (UPDATE) A front-end alignment fixed my initial issues with the comfort of the tires. I now have no complaints! The car now feels more eager, comfortable, and responsive to driver input than ever before.
