Quieter, doesn't seem like it rides any better or worse but I can't pass judgment for sure until I get some real mileage on this setup and I put the PS2's back on anyway since we won't see snow until November at the earliest. I went with the wide sizes because I won't be relying on the car to get around in serious snow and want it to not piss me off when the roads are dry 95% of the time.

The 40 series is a good idea, aside from losing the curb protection I bet it'd work great especially in real snow. Seems silly to give away ground clearance the way some of the popular winter setups do

Yesterday I took off the stock 220's & put on a set of TCIII"s wrapped in Super Sport 265/285 -35. Noticed the difference right away. 18's have a much better feel. Today I adjusted the air pressure & took it out on the Autobahn. Didn't plan on running it too hard, but looked down & I was over 160 MPH. One of the benefits other than beer of being here is the ability to mosey through rest stops & get back on in a no speed limit area. The car holds the road way better & takes the expansion joints much, much better. Night & day difference. Love the look too. Don't see myself going back to 19's...ever. 18's all the way -
