Initial Review, 1000 Miles on Tires
December 20, 2011

Imported them in from the US, manufactured 1st quarter 2011. Put them on 3 days prior to a track day up at Malaysia's Sepang F1 circuit and they handled superbly. A shade less grippy than the AD08s (215/45/17) but very good. Set a PB with this set of tyres. Sidewalls are rounded and not boxy which suits me fine, the walls are not as stiff as the Re11s and the Ad08s. Catching a slight twitch on corner exit does not flick me back violently in the seat like the Ad08s, it's less vicious.

Back home in Singapore and in tropical monsoon rains, this tyre inspires great confidence in the wet. Tyre noise is like a background noise to me after a while, no overbearing hum.

To summarize, it's a very good street tyre and adequate for the occasional track day. Expensive but I got what I paid for.
