I put new set of Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus after I got screws on two tires' sidewall on the OEM tires.

Positives: ( compared to OEM )
- quieter ride: not as much whining noise on concrete highway. The OEM tires would scream where as Serenity seems to to drown the noise well.

- softer ride: the bumps on the highway is felt but with dull thump rather than sharp crack

Negatives:
- the steering wheel feels more floaty. In fact, it's more prone to drift from center

- don't know why, but I feel more torque steer than the OEM tires

- it's more bouncy than OEM and if you fill the pressure to 36 psi, the rear tires feel VERY HARD. ( so I am keeping it at about 34 on the rear )

I have Conti DWS on all my other cars, but went with Serenity Plus due to reviews on this forum AND $70 rebate from Bridgestone.

Conclusion: It's an OK tire, but knowing what I know now, I should have went with DWS.

Where did you buy them from? Those Bridgestones qualify for the 30 day buy and try warranty. You can take them back before 30 days and get credit towards a different tire/different manufacture.
