If I wanted I could get Bridgestone RE-11s for 660 bucks(mounted). I hear the sidewall is pretty stiff, which may make the ride a bit busier, but I can handle it. . . probably. I have also heard people can get 15k+ miles out of them, which is really good. Anyone have any thoughts on this? If they are good for the price, I might just buy them next year.

Should add, they will be for daily use for about 6 months of the year(the warmer ones), so that is a thought, road noise isn't that big of a deal to me.
