Default visual differences with oem vs group n tophats?

I did not notice any with the fronts, it looks like the bearing inside could be different though?

Different material. You can totally feel the difference though, even if you cant see it.

Try the fingernail test: push the edge of your nail into the rubber material. If it sinks in: stock. If it's hard as hell: Group N

It would be nice if SOJ made something different on the GrpN mounts but the only difference is the resistance of the rubber that I have seen.

My stock rubber pieces are getting thrashed. I'm suprised the bearing hasn't ripped all the way through.

the bounciness is still awful. I wonder if getting off the 225/50's on oem's would help?
