Very, very quiet compared to the Orignial Equipment (OE) Bridgestone Potenzas. Smooth at all speeds up to 100mph. Excellent dry and wet traction compared to OE tires. Nice riding tire, if a bit more firm than OEs, but that is what I wanted and no morning thump as some have suggested these are prone to. Balanced nicely, with one requiring no weights. No snow since purchase. A great tire for the price, but a largely unknown sub-brand of Sumitomo?. Saw a set on a Mustang so they must have some performance capability. We will see if they last as long as the OE tires that went 60k miles. I am hoping these do better.
