When I put the non-RFTs on the hybrid, there was an immediate softening(read: more comfortable) of the ride, which I expected. However, it still was harsher than the ride that my G had, and I figured it was because of the sport suspension in the hybrid. Today, I was given a gasser, Q50 as a loaner, while they're doing the update. Even with the RFTs on it, the ride is even softer than that in my hybrid with the non-RFTs. I AM glad that I switched out the tires, but I would have preferred not to have the sport suspension. Oh well - can't have everything.
