What diameter sways? Not that it really matters because I've driven both small and large with BCs on them. I've driven a number of cars with BC's on them and even experimented with them on mine for 2 days last summer (before they were installed into their real home) because I wanted to know what I was talking about.

So, anyway, in a direct apples-to-apples comparison on Bridgestone Potenza RE-01Rs, my setup was substantially more capable. Specifically, the BCs were significantly easier to upset mid-corner by bumps, divots, or changes in surface condition. There were many corners on my 50mi "shakedown" circuit where I couldn't brake as deep or carry as much speed into the corners because the BCs were causing the chassis to become upset and lose adhesion to the road.
