Got the tires this morning and had them put on. Drove back on the 55, typical southern California highway, and my initial reaction is a 10/10. The tire looks much beefier than my previous Conti sports and I am liking it. Road chatter is non existent so far. Since I haven't broke them in I won't be going to the hilt on them for a bit but I did take a few corners/ bends at speed after getting off the 55 and so far I am impressed. Holds a very predictable line with, dare I say, surgical feedback from the road. The only insignificant gripe I have is the minuscule amounts of wander/ wabble driving straight at a set speed. Other than that this feels like it's going to be a long and happy friendship.
