I feel they have the best tread pattern for DD use primarily in the wet.

I think the Z2's will be slightly faster on pavement but I don't think the tread pattern would be good for lateral grip on dirt roads if/when we do TSD Rally's.

RE-11's were arguably the fastest Street tire of 2012. So I'm hoping the small compound change for 2013atleast keeps it on par with the Z2 while being slightly cheaper.

Rivals have a rather low starting tread depth and I'm not confident that they would be able to stand up to DD use. They remind me a bit of Victoracers but I'm probably totally wrong with my speculation. They're new and an unkown so I'm not willing to take the chance just yet.

Kumho XS's are old.

Hankook RS-3's are old.

I have little data to support my decision but atleast you can see my thought process that led me to it.
