Not bad the tread design is directional and looks good. The compound seems soft and grips better than the Goodyear rsa. Hope they will last a while but if they don't I'm not too worried since they are about $150 each.

Knowing that the dub2's are not forged and probably much heavier overall than the stockers, how is the ride and performance??

Ride quality is equal to the factory but there was a difference in performance. The over all diameter is a bit taller so the launch is not as torquey but still no slouch. Not as much tire spin as before and there is a little more time before shifts. the balance between looks vs performance was worth it for me. If you drag a lot then stay with factory size IMO. I kept my factorys if I go to the strip. Hope this helps.

that's good news... The dub2's look insane on your rig! Any rubbing issues?

Thanks for the write up, good point on sticking with stickers if performance is a concern. You just eased my decision to stay with my 20 inch reps. My only concern is that I need to sell the oems I have with tpms and everything on wrapped in Vreds ASAP, sitting in my basement wasting.
