Initial Review, 1,000 Miles on Tires
I am using the RE-11 as a track tire primarily for HPDE's. This is not a review to reference if you are looking for street use. Pushing the car to its limit feels comfortable. The tires have awesome grip and give the right amount of feedback to know how they are doing. They have a certain sound to their grip when cornering that you helps understand your steering inputs; they hum if you are gentle, sing nicely when they are happy, and start to scream if you are pushing the limit of traction. The steering feel is great since they feel planted but running a reasonable sidewall provides feedback of your body/tire roll through the steering wheel feel. These tires hardly roll the sidewall and are very capable so most of your feedback is audible.
