I was wondering what peoples' opinion was on these tires. I'm currently running them in their 205/45/r16 variant on stock 2004 SE wheels.
I've autox'd them, and they were meh. Everyone that drove my car basically said that they're better than like all seasons, but not much more.
I could've worked on my tire pressure as well, I was at 28psi on all 4 for a little while, but lowered the rear pressure as the day went on.

never ran them on a Miata, in the muscle car world everyone liked them cause they could spin 2nd or 3rd gear when they couldn't before. Just stupid cheap rubber molded to look like a high performance tire.

What's your intended use for the tire? Just running around on the street pick something that wears well and don't worry about grip, it's not like you're going to win a trophy on your way to work.

Auto-x you need to have re71 or Rival S to be on the pointy end of the field. The VR1 and RS4 have proven to be a tick slower but last 3 to 4 times longer and do well for track days.

They suck in the rain. The sidewalls are soft. They are sticky to start, but once you get some heat into them a few times they loose that....
