It's hard for me to compare them, as I did a plus 2 wheel to 18" and Eibach springs and sport shocks at the same time. But I am very happy with the ride quality. With a lesser tire I'm sure the ride quality would have suffered. A little more road noise than the 16" contis, which is expected given the lower profile and width. Ride quality is excellent overall. No freeway tracking. Have not had a chance to drive 'em through the twisties yet and I've been kinda babying it as they are brand new. My pilots are the XGT Z4 so the price is good and they have decent wet weather perf. supposedly. Got them from tire rack. I'll post details and before/after pics of my upgrade shortly.

: : Excellent ride, low noise, good handling, good price. Would have gotten them for my new 18" wheels, but they are not available in that size. Got Michelin Pilots instead.

: : : Has anyone had any experience with Pirelli P7000 Supersports? I've been think of getting a set for my 17" wheels. All feedback is appreciated.
