So far, the ride is a crapload smoother and, oddly enough, my brakes haven't squealed once since I've put them on . Also, seems to handle better, but this probably has more to do with the fact that my tires should have been replced 10k miles ago, according to the tech who installed them. Oops!
I had the YK520s which were replaced with the YK580s on my Altima. Loved those tires, smooth ride, quiet, gripped decently for an A/S, my only gripe was wet weather traction. The replacement happened because they improved specifically that in the 580.
