I recently installed Falken FK451 unidirectional tires on an '87 GT  (225 / 45 R17  front,  245 / 40 R18  rear). 

While seat of the pants performance improved, tread / road noise is quite high.  Surprisingly though, steering effort at parking speeds is down.

If you're looking for quiet at highway speeds, my observation is that the Falken tires may not be for you.

I have found that my 17's are a real rough ride as well. I would assume that that holds true of most 17's 18's etc. as compared to 15's or 14's on the Fiero.

Kind of a side note but you would have better performance control with 205 on the front.

Your only limitations are set from within, by a lack of vision.  But to have vision alone leaves the process idle.  Ergo, without action your thoughts are worthless.
