I did a lot of work to make them fit. Sway bar relocation brackets, relocated lower rear shocks and changed the brakes all around to 2012's. I figured that once I switched the rear gear to a 3.73 I wouldn't be doing any really high speed runs anymore and never any road racing. I do enjoy drag racing a lot and the trade off to put drag wheels/tires on it was worth it to me.
As for ride, steering is lighter due to reduced mass and I have a boat load more traction. I still use the stock wheels for most of my daily driving though as you do lose a bit of cornering ability with the smaller front tires and drag radials.
