Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec
Follow-Up Review: 16,001 miles on tires

I had since changed these tires out to the RT-615K from Falken, and they are pretty good. I got to compare these to the company's SP Sport 600 that they gave me on the 2012 STi I purchased, and I missed the Star Specs. Much better choice. Might update if I get a chance to really test the K's out and can compare them once the engine is fixed. I have filled out a review on how scary, dangerous, and what rubbish the sp sport 600's are. These are definitely my pick of the Dunlop products, and possibly of any equivalent spec'd tires.

These have actually lasted me a decent amount of time, including a trip to the dragon. They did lose grip over time, they don't have good grip if the ground is cold or rainy, then they are rather useless with a turbocharged s2000, but the have held up. These held up better then the Falken AZENIS RT-615, which didn't finish the trip to the dragon (about 500 miles of the dragon itself), but the RT-615s did have better grip in my opinion.
