They are a good choice for your 1st dedicated autocross tire, but once you've tried Falkens, Z1s or RE01s, you'll think the Kooks leave something to be desired.

Agreed on that, there's another focus in my region that runs a 205 falken, and he's much faster than me. But he also has many years experience on me. I ended up getting the 'kooks because the other tires aren't available in a 225 width for a 15 inch rim. But the 'kooks are much better the BFG sports, don't get me wront the BFG was a good touring tire, it just rolled over like crazy on the stock wheel. I couldn't put in enough pressure to keep them from rolling.

So I'm thinking of running the kooks 'till they're done, then putting some rcomps on the new wheels and running FSP.
