Ran them this season and have had zero complaints, other than we couldn't use them at SLB on Wednesday
I'd put it this way when comparing RS3s to Star Specs, AD08s, RE11s: Why pay more money per tire, to go slower on a track. They are great bang for the buck tires.
This is good to hear. I liked my Star Specs, but had nothing to compare them too except the old style Falkin 615's (non-K) and they were way better. I had a set of slicks too that were awesome, but that's a different animal completely.
But the price of the Stars is wild. This settles it, R-S3's it is.

Fortunately, this is a fun car and not a DD so tire life span isn't a concern. If I only get 10,000 miles, so be it.
