A little stiffer than the stock 18's. I live in Minnesota and the roads where I live are great. However if I venture to downtown Minneapolis I am constantly dodging holes. If I lived near that city or visited regularly, I would be replacing rims alot.

Tracking this summer on Kumho because of cost/wear, also going to use Vredestein Ultracs. In each case 235/40/18....No spacers ever and O.Z. Superleggra III (track) or Axis Hiros as the wheels (mountains)<p>I also have PS2 that I will use for Harriman/Bear Mountain missions<p>I am a tire freak <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

If you're doing it for looks, that's another thing. But get spacers.

I was planning to buy them but it looks like I may be able to get one more season out of my PZeros and I hate to let them sit for a year.
