    It shouldn't make a difference unless for some reason the tires were significantly heavier than your last set, or your tire pressures are low. I have N3000's on the front and I don't have any problems, but I have heard some complaints about them crapping out early.

    I don't see how tires the same size would make the car any slower personally. Either you are just imagining things or perhaps you have another issue. Don't take the imagining things the wrong way. We all have "thought" something was wrong with our cars after getting something installed on them.

    Why exactly does the car seem slower? Is it hesitating? Maybe you have a dirty air filter or dirty MAF.
