Thats not all together true. Super Sports are great for a stock M3, but damn near worthless on a turbo M3. When your tires break loose every time you spool the turbo, they won't last any longer than the NT05's. I got more miles out of my M/T's than I did from the stock tires, simply due to the fact that they didn't spin all the time. Regardless, when you get to this power level, you have to expect to be replacing rear tires a lot more often.
