If responsiveness is any concern to you, steer clear(!) of the MXV4s.

I had them on my CQ for a month before I invoked my local tire dealers 30
day satisafaction guarantee. The were exceedingly smooth riding. That sums
up the positives,in my experience.

My mechanic had them for a while on his 5000, but didn't like them for the
floaty feel it gave his car. My brother has them now on his Stealth, and
wishes I'd have warned him.

I replaced them with Dunlop D60's, and have been reasonably happy with the
feel they give my car.

Good luck,
