Just put the exact same tires on my '15 and totally agree with you about the ride. Where did you get the goliaths? They look good. I had my ice and snow tires mounted right to the spider monkeys. Will be driving my wrangler in shitty jersey winter weather!!

The S-Type does have it's great attributes though most of the time it sounds well tuned.

75mph cruising down the highway is very acceptable and pleasant. You can hear the MDS kick in around that speed while cruising but you can hear that with the stock exhaust as well...

One last thing that Brimsko will back me up on is that the Borla S type is not quiet by any means it is a substantial increase in exhaust sound. Maybe I'm just getting old (31) but I think any other exhaust option would be too loud for my taste.

These are just my opinions...
I would agree 100% as I have the same experiences on my 2015. With that being said, maybe the valves don't make that big of a difference as I still feel the same as CLS and also have that boomy sound at low speeds under low to moderate acceleration. I am getting used to it and the benefits far outweigh any negatives. IMHO, it actually seems to be quieting down as I put more miles on it...or maybe the sound is just becoming more "refined" if that makes sense.

It is definitely changing. In a good way.
I've got about 820 miles on mine so far...

Here is a sneek peak of some audio craziness that has begun in my jeep this weekend.

$ h! T is about to get real!!
Stealth install...but packing a big punch when the curtains are pulled!

I have been planning this install since before I even got the BEAST!

Stay tuned.....

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Got my SRT rear cargo matt from LLOyds in, and also installed the CLSTech DRL activation mod. Man was it easy!! Took about 15 mins from start to finish, and was racing the winter darkness as well. Like to commend CLSTech for the great kit and amazing instructions. Well worth the money if anyone is on the fence.
