Just know that your minimum pressure is going to be 35-36 with those, since they're smaller diameter and have a smaller load rating.

You might also notice more rollover onto the sidewalls during aggressive driving.

I loved the wet/dry traction of this tire when I had it in the OE-size, but they were a PITA to balance and the steering response sucked.
