Since this is the only tire available for the stock Elise front wheels I it makes choosing tires pretty easy. Now on my third set of fronts at 58K miles on the car.
I stay with the AD07's for the front to keep the light feel to the steering and responsive handling. Have tried ADO8s on the rear to see if they would last longer. They were less expensive, but tread life was about the same. Recently installed Michelin Pilot Super Sports on the rear to see if I can get better tread life.
I track the car regularly, but use the AO48's on a separate set of wheels for the track.
