How does the ride quality and handling compare with the softer tyres?

Tell you later, out for a run today.
The old rears were Falken and weren't particularly soft, the Cooper tyres seem to have a more flexible sidewall and the tread feels little different, maybe a bit softer.

Got 28psi at the moment, see how they go.
