I recently bought a set or the Roadtecs but unfortunately destroyed the rear tire trying to mount myself. Currently trying to get another rear, so far only have the front installed. I do notice however cornering stability has improved considerably over previous front tire. It is easier to hold a line and bike feels more planted/secure in a high speed sweeper type turn. I don't have those moments of lightness I got from the previous tires that made me unsure if I had traction in the front end or not. Not sure if this is entirely the tire, or the fact I've gone from a worn in V profile front tire to a new round profile on the front tire.
I've given up trying to install my own tires. Found a guy who will do it for $17.50 inc taxes. I find it easy to remove a tire from the rim but mounting a new tire is impossible without a machine like the professional installers use IMO. I've tried zip tie method and spoons over the years with less than 50% success with the mounting portion.
