they arnt the best tire to run as they are designed for circuit racing. they grip best at 160 degrees plus. yokohama themselves informed me to NOT run these on my s2000... just as bfgoodrich told me to NOT run the gforce R-1s. both were honest and said id be unhappy. (only because they take a while to get at their designed operating temp)
I was told by hoosier and kumho and have done alot of R comp shopping... the a6s and kumho 710s are quick heating optimal grip warm weather tires. 4/32nd tires.
now the outdated victoracers or the new michelin pilot sport cups may be better if your on a budget and you drive back and forth to the events and occasionally see wet water. both at 5-6/32nds
