Default 245 's for hot weather roadcourse 2019 Maxxis VR-1 / Hankook R-S4/ Rival 1.5 ??

My heavy NB2 horsepower has taken a good jump in the last few months, and my 225 R-S4's are on their last leg. Time to go to 245's

How are the hot weather Roadcourse times on the Maxxis Victra VR-1 vs the Hankook R-S4?

Not interested in autocross or short cool weather roadcourse tires that melt after 3 summertime laps at Sebring like my original Rivals? Have not ran the newer 245 Rival S 1.5

Sebring was not nice to my original set of Rivals. Something about stupid hot Sebring concrete summertime and bumps?

Had good luck with R-S4's in 225, but they almost wear "too well" and looking for a good bit more grip without going to my TT Hoosiers.

Sometimes it nice to drive to the track and not worry about rain. Not wanting a rain tire just something faster than R-S4 's that aren't in stock right now anyway.

On that note when is the 245 VR-1 coming out in the S2 compound?

RS4 is a better hot weather tire than the RC-1, by a small margin. As the RS4 no-existo, that's academic however.

RS4 is still alive, just having the standard supply game because, you know,

Is there any ETA on the RS4? Or are the only choices this spring going to be Rival or VR1?

The way Hankook works, the ETA update will be when the deliveries hit the warehouses and they can count to see how many tires they got.

The 245 was on tire rack yesterday. I think they're in.
