If you are at all concerned about the change in ride quality, a good coilover system will only make your car ride and handle better regardless of tires used.

handling: sick

tire noise and harshness: not that fun, but to be perfectly honest it just isn't that much worse than stock for me. if you want to get rid of the harshness you really just need to find tires with less ridiculous sidewalls...generally less chunky all around. I'm looking forward to burning away the rest of these rft's and getting some better tires.
