"while the Radar did give a harsh ride,( because of my set up)it did handle well.."
Thanks for the feedback on the Radars vs the Eagle GTs. It is possible that your old Radars seemed crisper because they were worn. The DWSs do have a mushy-ish sidewall, many people have reported having to inflate to 40+PSI to get good handling. FYI, I've had many complaints on the quick wear on the Eagle GTs. (as well as the Falken 912s) One redeeming thing about the company Goodyear in general. They are very forgiving on their treadwear warranties. I've processed claims for 100% through Goodyear when the tires didn't deserve it. Seems they'll give anything away.
P.S. I run the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S+. I think that considering how important a tire is to your driving pleasure, They are worth the extra loot.
