I wouldn't even use Azenis until you are fairly skilled. They are very sticky and can mask some mistakes just like R Compounds can but to a smaller degree.
I ran with street tires (dunlop 8080e and then toyo t1-s) for 3 years before I changed to the Azenis and they grip really well for a non R-compound tire.
