For everyday, I use Eagle F1 A/S tires on 18's - 225fr, 255rr.

For summer/track, I had General Exclaim UHPs which are now bald. So I'm having some Dunlop Direzza Sport Star Specs installed on my OEM 17's this week.

Star Spec Z1's are WIN!!!

You're going to be so surprised at how much better they perform than the General's.

So I've read. I can't wait to get the Z1s on my car.

The Generals did fine and took a thorough beating. The only bad thing was that they tramlined pretty bad towards the end.

Yeah, those new Dunlops should make a big difference in traction.
