Any 2015 Autocross Tire 200TW Recommendation

Non-M and I'm going to be running 17x8 or 17x8.5 rims and I'm thinking 245/40 Tires. I do pretty well in F-Street and even put up a 6th in PAX overall on with a 325ci (only regional of course), but its a time for a 200TW Tire since I plan on doing a dozen or so auto-xs a year.

Any recommendations appreciated, after spending $600 to $800 on tires I'd like to be happy with them till they are worn out.

Stick with the 17x8.5s and run the 245/40/17 RE-71R.

A month ago I was talking with my race tire distributor about these when I spotted a set of them in his warehouse, the word is that these RE-71R's are really (probably) a 100 Tread Wear tire. This of course would give anyone running them a Major advantage against anyone running a real 200 TW tire.

Good luck,
