Tire Pros

Great traction

Tire Cons

You need to heat up the tire. Not a great tire for wet.

This is a great tire. Handeling is outstanding. You do need to heat up the tires and it's ok for wet but this tire hooks up! I have tried all of the others that Lotus suggested but this one has been the best so far.

I bought these tires anticipating they would be better than the new Falken Azenis RT615K for track tires. They are not. Ultimate grip is lower than the new Azenis and for cars driven on track without the aid of extreme negative camber, the small tread blocks on the shoulder give out to heat buildup quickly. They dont have the direct steering feel of the Azenis either. Will not buy again.

Tire Pros

good dry traction decent wet traction warm up fast

Tire Cons

limited sizes

Have done 4 or 5 autox on these, one which was a rainy day and 55 degrees. The grip improved after they broke in and got the air pressure sorted out. Drive to and from events on these as well and they pretty good, would consider them on daily driver in summer months. Would buy again

Tire Pros

Great track day tire for the price. Handling is awesome, sticks like glue without getting greasy during track sessions.

Tire Cons

none so far.

these tires are a great bargain for track day use. Car is a 95 BMW M3 and has track time at Putnam Park and Gateway. Dry use only, so far. They stick well without getting greasy audring a track session. For the price they are an excellent choice.
