I used these to replace Bridgestone S-03's, so my review is a comparison to those. First, MUCH quieter! I can hear my exhaust again. Much less tramlining - the Eagles are great on groved roads. The ride is also notably softer than S-03's. On Detroit roads, this is a huge deal.

The DS-G3's still have that 'Brain bleeding out through ear' grip. I think I have found my permanent summer tire,depending on wear/treadlife - I am very happy with these.

edit: two summers on these (with ~10 auto-x's total), and they still have tread, enough that I'll run them next summer as well. Still love the ride, noise & grip.
