Default Best AutoX tire

Tire rack suggests this:
1.) Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec
2.) Advan Neova AD07
3.) Potenza RE01R
4.) P-Zero
5a.) Ecsta MX
Kuhmo has come out w/ the XS and I am wondering how it relates to the others. Am I missing any tire I should consider? I heard Toyo had something to offer. I have until mid Jan to figure out what to replace my Bridgestone REO1's with. Dunlap and Kuhmo's are about $50 cheaper than new Bridgestones.
Thanks for your help.
Mark

You could also consider the Hankook R-S2. I bought them after my last set of fk-452's and they were a pretty big step up in terms of autox performance.

Some classes go by treadwear rating on the tires. Something to consider.

I am in a street tire class and tread wear must be 140 min.

Certainly like the price. Even though Tire Rack handles Hankook, they don't list them in their Sticky on iClub in any category.

I have the dunlop Direzza z1's and I like them alot. Very sticky. I hear the star specs have better thermal properties than the regular z1s which got discontinued. The last time I checked prices, they had a $50 rebate when you buy four of em.

I bought the tires from tirerack. The rebate was through Dunlop. I don't know if they still have it going though.
