Initial Review: 5,500 miles on tires

I just finished a track Dave A NJMP. Driving with an instructor, we worked on improving my corner entry and exit speeds. 4 thirty minute sessions later and I am very impressed with these tires. Under track conditions they were extremely solid performers, had great grip cornering and braking, and exceeded my expectations.

I've tracked a Ferrari 360 in the past with much more expensive tires, and these were much better on track.

I'm looking to buy a new set of wheels right now for this car (that's why I'm here today) and they're getting this tire.

I've driven performance cars for 30+ years, these tires give the best bang for the buck of any I've driven on.

Definitely recommend them.
