Bumping the thread, because I just pulled the trigger on some Zed II's. Getting them installed on Monday, autox at michelin proving grounds on the 24th.

Went with the 205/50/15 for my 15x7.5 rotas.

I hope things pan out and these will become my rains, and I'll have hoosiers by June...

^^ Do you have photos of your tire setup?

I would like to see that. 15 x 7.5. Any rub issues? I was thinking about going from my 16s down to some 15s that I could find for the SVT.

After 2 months of trying to make a tire decision, I finally pulled the trigger on RE-11A's. They just arrived today.

First event is on April 14th! Can't wait!

Congrats. Those are some great tires. I haven't bought them, but many of the local AutoX'ers here who have them say they are great from cold to hot.

I've driven the old RE-11's on a number of other vehicles (Miata, Mini, 350Z, RX8 and Corvette) and enjoyed their performance on course. I'm hoping the compound change for the RE-11A keeps them close to the performance of the Z2 and Rival.

Long story, but I didn't get the chance to run the car the other weekend, but will try to be running it on the 13th. Did take the focus for a shakedown spin last night, really impressed with the grip.

I've been following the thread for a bit - anyone have a recommendation for a tire that can pull DD and AutoX?

I've been considering :

Ventus V12
Ecsta LE
HTR ZIIIs

I've run on the Sumitomos before and they're decent, but I found their grip lacking. I'm not sure I'll get much more out of the other two.

Wildcard - A local hook-up can get a decent price on RE-11a's, but I'm not really sure about having them on the car as a daily driving tire. I'm honestly not concerned about the ride quality/noise, but realistic milage for a DD tire. Any thoughts?
