they have worked well so far. took them on the track and dont seem to wear as much as my goodyear eagle LS's. no excessive road noise that i know of, but then again i have no resonator and no mufflers so its not exactly dead quiet on the highway. havent tried to take hairpin turns going 80, cuz well, i just dont have a need to barrel into turns, nor do i drive that way. so im not sure what your looking for in terms of an answer of how well they "work"

got them because they were wider and on the cheap side of tires that were 245's

Were they available in a 255/50/16? The 245's are a full inch shorter than the stock size.

understood, but if you lookat some of the other tires (say 245-45-17) you will start to see a cost savings with onlinetires.com

I didn't say you shouldn't have bought from your place, I am just offering another great place to buy tires online. Both are cheaper than tire rack or discount tire for a LOT of the tires.
