I mounted them up last night. So far the ride is like new tires. I went from 205/40 18 run flats to 215/45 17s, so the ride is actually kind of wonderful.

I have the ASX on my GTI with great results.

LOL _ I still need to get 'em mounted... Sitting in my garage.

Gotta' get them up the street to the shop for mounting & balancing. Probably this week as the weather appears to be pretty crappy towards the weekend.

My local Firestone says $15.99 a wheel to mount & balance... We shall see. Hope they don't thrash the rim in the process.

I've had them installed for almost a month now. 205/45/17
They are fairly quiet and for the price, I'm really happy with them.

Easier to put on than Yokohama as 430's are to take off. Got my fronts on tonight in about thirty minutes rears tomorrow balancing the front pair in the morning. They did mark the light spot for the valve on the inside face on one of them though.

After several thousand miles I can say the set I have now will be my only set. Not very good at lateral grip as compared to Yokohama as430 they replaced.
