the RFTs might be too harsh, but some on here say its just nice, all depends on the roads in your area as well.
Thanks for the feedback

Sorry but I cannot understand this....conti dws with this kind of a suspension?? Are they not very soft sidewalls? You will now likely have that body roll due to the tires. Not sure if it is worth spending so much money on the suspension just to go ahead and screw it up by putting on soft shoes.

the body roll due to the tires isn't that bad, still takes corners and tight turns like a champ. a dedicated summer tire may have been a better idea, but its a very minimal amount of roll
