I have them on my E46. My brother just bought a set for his car.

I highly recommend them.

I think they are among the best non-R-compounds tires you can get for the money.

Quiet. Super sticky. Cheap.

The only problem is that they will wear out quickly because of the soft sticky rubber.

Go for it.

What Toyo's are you talking about exactly? The T1R's?

I don't think driving on R-compound tires on the street is a good idea. They will wear very quickly. You CAN, but what's the point? You won't use all the potential of the tire unless you are an irresponsible driver.

Even on the track, R-comp are not recommended for novice drivers.

The RT615 (or a set of Hankook ventus Z212) are the best choice for street tires in my opinion. Plus it is hard to beat that price.

Incredible tires.

I'm just waiting on Falken to finally introduce the 225/50/15 fitment to throw out my current (new) tires. FWIW I ran them in 205/50/15 on another set of wheels and was blown away by their performance.

Those were the old version of them, the RT-215. And yeah, it was funny having strangers tell me I need new tires when they were a week old.
