I have only run about 5 full sessions on them, but I think they have everything you could want in a tire for that price.

consistent performance, braking and turn in are very nice, and good feedback overall.

I purchased them at the track after I corded my NT01's on advice of an experienced spec miata guy that has tried just about every tire on the planet.

He believes the Hankook is even better than an R6, on his Miata. I never had Hoosiers, but I put them on par with the Advan A048's I was running last year.

But the price is good, about $165 ea compared to just over $200 for an R6 or the Yokes.

I'll have to see if they hold up to heat cycles well or just go off quickly. My Advans are pretty beat up with almost a full season on them, and as long as it's a warmer day with full sun, they still grip real well. If the Hankooks can do that then I will definitely buy them again.
