Finally had to break down and get new shoes for my ride. After much research, I decided on the RE760's to replace my balding, staggered RE750's. My car feels like new again!! I can actually hear the engine purring now and road noise is almost completely gone. Of course, handling is greatly improved with the most civil sports ride I've felt since getting the car. I'll probably give the RE960's a shot next time since they come with a mileage warranty of 40k and are all-season whereas the RE760's are summer only and have no warranty. All-in-all a very exciting experience though and a highly recommended tire to improve your handling and overall ride comfort. I walked out the door for $730.53 and that includes the new CA 9.75% tax...time for another Boston Tea Party IMO!
