How long did you run the Star Specs vs. the NT05's? What did you use them for (drag, autocross, road course, street, etc)?
I've been using the Star Specs on the street for a while now, and I like them a lot, but they're not exactly cheap. The NT05's are over $200 less for a set, and they have great reviews overall. I think they're worth a shot. We'll both be going to the track with stickier tires for the first time, so it will be a big change from OEM tires for both of us.
He was looking at getting NT01's, but didn't want to use them for street tires. He was hoping to get a set of track wheels but ran out of time before our track day, so he decided the NT05's would be the best option for a street/track tire at a reasonable price.
