    Taemian,

    Just remember you are putting these on a Marauder, not a Mustang.
    Potholes and Marauders don't like each other...
    Rear tires need to have a +5% Circumference over the fronts.

    Well I have had the Cooper Zeon Rs3-G1's on for three months now. Maybe about 600 miles.

    I like them. They feel right on the car. They are not loud nor are they brutally hard. They feel very competent in the turns. I have not pushed the car to its limits with these tires yet. I am a bit spirited in my driving style. No problem with hydroplaning.

    I went from my second set of stock model BFG's to these at 33.5K miles. It would be nice if I got a bit more than 17K out of a set. Not too concerned though as age comes usually into play here. I have not gone from a new set of BFG's to a new set of Coopers but it felt good switching to these new rubbers from the worn but still legal BFG's.

    This is a great visual of what the tires would look like, as well as all the numbers including percentage difference.

    I put fronts as Tire 1, rears as tire 2.

    Easy peasey!

    +1 on the Cooper RS3-G1 tires in the stock size. I had them for over 2 weeks & around 700 miles so far on the Marauder.

    How are the front Cooper tires wearing? Did you use car fixers alignment specs?
