I honestly cant really run crap tires anyway. The Pirelli P-zero's arent the best summer tire and they have issues with traction.

How many miles would a set of RE-11 or Kumho XS get me? If i had to guess id get 15 to 20k miles out of the P-zeros with regular driving.
Ouch... Sure doesn't. There's actually a local guy that AXes his GT500 looking for a daily tire that can also substitute as a rain tire for national events (runs A6s at events currently).

I'd expect in the 10k-20k range for miles on any sticky street tire on our car, RE-11, XS, etc. My current set of Star Specs has survived 15+ AX events, and 5 days at the track. Could've lasted another 1-2 track days easily if I'd bothered to flip them last month.

Where'd you see pricing on the ZII...? I haven't seen it anywhere...
