So, after one track weekend on these tires, I am highly in love with these. I thought they seemed to be pretty much comparable to the T1Rs, but factor in the cars having different suspension setups and what not, couldnt tell ya 100% but I liked these more. For the price difference, I dont see how the T1Rs are such a big deal. I would buy another set of these.
I was holding my own with my little e30 w/Azenis VS others with much more experience and car (ex. e46s w R comps, etc..) not a shabby tire IMO at all.
So ya, decent in the rain, awesome in dry. Will buy another set. The end.
