buy the August 2005 issue of GRM, they tested the tires worth testing for autocross. No flamefest necessary.

But they still won't be as fast as dot-r's.
Thanks for the info, I think I might actually have that magazine at home, I will have to read the article. As for DOT-R's, I haven't ruled them out yet, but I want something that won't kill me if I happen to be at a wet event or for that suprise summer afternoon downpour on the drive home.
Maybe something like the Hankook Ventus RSS Z211?

I didn't know that about the RT-215's, I'll have to take that under consideration as I was kinda leaning that way. Any other thoughts on the new 615's vs. the old 215's?
