usage: Solo2 auto-x H-stock.

I had high expectations of these tires and they did not disapoint. Dry grip is incredible. These will drop many many seconds off your auto-x time (compared to street tires). They were even a second or 2 faster than my old Yoko Advans A032R. The sidewalls are super stiff (i run ~30psi Front 32rear, will little to no roll over). The tires have worn noticibly after every event. I expect to get less than 20 events out of them. however the tire wear is even. The tires are built with rounded shoulders so that a little bit of wear there wont expose a cord. I have noticed that they grip well when not fully warmed up. (although on cold rainy days, it seems impossible to get any heat into them). A must for the serious autoxer.
