I've got these tires too (225/45-17 on the O.Z. Ultraleggera). They are amazing in wet and snow as well as daily dry conditions. But OMG they're friggin loud for sure, I'm takin my car in to get the alignment checked. I really don't mind noise that much, but these are just outrageous especially in the 0-20mph range and 50+ mph area. Great tire though in the all-condition road holding aspect.
