Thx for the informative review. More road noise than the PS2's, eh? That's surprising. I am running the kook ventus evos and they are definitely quieter yet just as grippy.

I was planning to get the Vreds on my extra set of OEM 19's....

- Definitely hear more road noise than the PS2's, though that may decrease as they wear in.
- Cornering, squealing a fair bit, but I don't think they're broken in fully yet.
- Stickiness/Confidence, I took my regular freeway interchange at the same speed as I would with the PS2s and these felt as good.
- turn in, these tires are crisp, I'm running 275 all around, but sidewalls definitely feel stiffer. I used to get that rollover on sharp turns with the PS2's, I get the squealies with the vreds, but not the squirrelies.
-Looks, might be just the new rims, but today I got 2 compliments about how "sick" the car looked. Stock except apex Arc-8 18x10 rims and the 275/35/18 vreds. M3s are common in my area.

I have autox next weekend on this setup and hope to get a track day in very soon, so I'll post back.
