Zab I had the azenis on my fofo and they are good (not great) and they were my first set of racing tires although I didn't get a chance to finish them. My brother raced on the toyo R1R and he liked them but they wore out to quick I think, and now he left me a set of RS3s and they eare WAY better than the azenis, I love the azenis because they come in 215/45 16 but the RS3s just killed them lol
Ray let me borrow his RS3s on my car once and it felt way better than the azenis. But they would be a great first set IMHO

GodLovesUgly canyon runs and daily driving is one thing, but when you're talking autocross, it's a completely different story. i'm not trying to start a pissing match or anything, but the proof is in the pudding, for autox the RS3 is hands down the best street tire.

That is interesting, I assume both are in the same size? If we are talking autox though, its not quite the same as blasting through the canyons. RS3s have been shown to deal with heat much better than the falkens, so at an autox you won't be out there trying to spray down greasy falkens after every run.

I don't have the money to do any testing, unfortunately, so I can't tell you definitively if the RS3s would out perform Azenis at an autox.

I think you could be happy going with any of the current popular street tires though. I think that at nationals this year, RE-11s, RS3s and whatever the Toyo tire is, performed the best.

yeahloh02 i run the star specs and love them it feels like a whole different car when i put them on ,i am in h-stock and have won my class all 3 times this year

GodLovesUgly i'm sure he won't be disappointed but the RS3 kills the Azenis tire at the highest level of autocross.. Nationals.
i've even heard the Toyos are better as well.

DEMENTED SVTF 215/45/16 falken azenis lol. Trust me u wont regret it. I was blown away of how these handle. In local we have some really nice twisty canyons that get really tight 15-30mph and open up abit 50-70mph

pkolator 225 is a lot of street tire for a 7" wheel. The tendency would be to a more delayed steering response and less feel. Also, a 50 sidewall in that width makes for a tall tire as well.
