I noticed the difference in the ride quality as soon as I began to drive on them. The handling is something that these tyres have made a big difference at.

Very happy with them overall and the car really looks good in the day time. You really cannot see much at night.

I would say the ride is a bit harder now than before but then I was expecting it. That was bound to happen after the change from the OEM Bridgestones. But that is more than made up for in the handling. There is just so much grip now.

No nitrous shot man. Its great just the way it is now. Just enough power and now its a better handler too. Honestly I dont get into a lot of spirited driving though I have the confidence to push it more on the highway now after the new rubber.

I am contemplating whether to put one or not. I am very confused reagarding the spoiler. I feel it looks good the way it is and some say it looks incomplete without one.
