Tire Pros

Razor sharp steering Amazing lateral grip Good tire life for this much grip

Tire Cons

Comes with 5/32 tread at 3/32 grooves are gone. Still great for track but not good for street if it rains.

If you want the most grip for handling on the street (for a non daily driver) this is the tire. They are ok in the rain until the grooves are worn out. I can get about 2000 miles on the street until the grooves are gone. With road race suspension and 630whp managed a 11.30@130mph in 1/4 mile so it has good grip. The handling is epic. I have had 4 sets over the years they are all I want to run on a high hp non daily driven car

Tire Pros

Excellent Grip Reduced Lap times

Tire Cons

short life

I use these tires 270x40x17 on my heavily modified 1995 Mustang GT. I am on my second set. Drive mostly at Watkins Glen in HPDE schools. They reduced my lap times significantly, and hold the track really well. My car puts 440hp to rear wheels. Very little wheel spin although the inside (left) rear wears faster than any other of the tires. I am very happy with the way they handle and hold the track. I will buy them again. Best tire for the money.
