It's a soft cushy ride with easy steering and a good sound system. Very comfortable and easy to drive. If I want a fun car to drive on my back roads I take out the convertible.

I was not happy with them on my kids Audi A4 . They were both noisy and hard riding. Tread wear at 20K miles is not good. Will need a replacement before 23K. As for putting them on a ES350 family...

I use the 272 HP in the ES to get me to the mall comfortably and in a reasonable time. The peddle only goes half way. The 510HP in the Jag gets me to the golf course with a smile on my face.
