I've switched out the runflats for Conti DWS, but now the car wallows all over.
If you try to push the car hard, it understeers HORRIBLY. There is a tremendous delay between a steering wheel input, vs the car actually going where I want it to.
The Conti DWSs are super smooth on bad roads. I really can go over any bump, but their on-center feel is horrid. The car feels baloony and floaty not.

I must admit on thing:
The Runflats made the car feel sharp, and VERY precise.

I guess what I'm looking for is the following:

-Get the precision feel back.

-Change the ride quality, so the car is taut, and hunkered down to the road, but WITHOUT the jarring that I used to get on expansion joints and back roads. (which is exacerbated by runflats...)

-Cure the bunny- HOP, mid turn, and on rough roads.

I drive on really bad roads, so lowering is not an option for me.

Maybe Konis will help?
