I still have them.
225/45-17 on stock 2006 WRX rims.
No cupping. No shoulder wear. No vibrations. No problems.
No real road noise concerns -- depends if you're on concrete, asphalt, new or old, cracked, etc., with concrete being the noisiest.
In 5,000 miles, they have worn 2/32". They start at 10/32".
Daily driver. Spirited driving every now and again. Like to corner here and there.
Great dry or wet and good in the snow.
