I wanted one set of tires to serve street and track driving. I first tried the Hankook V12's for the price, and was very disappointed.
As soon as i put on the Michelin Pilot Super Sports on my car, I noticed the steering is more direct and predictable. I have better grip through the corners and i can drive with more confidence.
You get what you paid for. Don't waste your time testing out cheap or non-popular tires. Get the best and be satisfied with it.
