Actually, I like how the car drives even more when it's wet and rainy! (I haven't gone over any large puddles at high speed, so I haven't felt the hydroplaning that others complain about.) I think the normal wet-road noise hides the thunking and drumming that the ContiProContact tires make over bumps and expansion joints. I'm putting on winter tires in October, so I can't wait to see what difference it makes in the ride and noise ...
