(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now the outdated victoracers or the new michelin pilot sport cups may be better if your on a budget and you drive back and forth to the events and occasionally see wet water.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
