Thanks Taka, I wasn't kidding about my memory unit!

I meant to mention the offset AND the noise in the first message, the
Sports drone at highway speeds even when new.  I drove my Dad to
N. CA from CO and back just after getting them, transitioning from
concrete to softer asphault on the interstates was occasion to emit a
sigh of relief.

Still like them, I'd buy another set if I needed tires.
