I've switched to the driveguards over a month ago and so far they have been great. Much better than original GYs. Slighty softer sidewalls make a huge difference over potholes. Hoping they will...

I recently switched to driveguards as well. So far they have been great. They definitely feel more forgiving than the GY LS2s. Time will tell if they are better on potholes.
