I have had 615s and RS-Rs. I would give the RS-Rs a try if I were you. Inexpensive and just as good as 615s on the street. A little better in the wet too.

I run the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 tires. Awesome in the rain, excellent treadwear for a performance tire, and reasonable cost (but you never stated what your price range is). Goodyear also has a $40 rebate on them (which I did receive from them, albeit 2 weeks late) when I purchase those tires in February.

Don't know yet. I run pretty mild camber specs and got ~15k on 615s so I am expecting similar mileage. I have about 5k on them so far. No track though...

I made a post about BFgoodrich g-force sport tires this morning. I highly recomend hem. As I stated in my post Im on my 3rd summer with these. I know you say you want all seasons. Why is beyond me. If you want maximum traction go with a summer tire and run winters in the winter if you get snow where you live. The prices on tire rack run just over $100 ea. Cant beat that. I dont drive like a raped ape but I do kick the back end out now and again and they feel pretty stable. Curious as to why only limit yourself to all seasons? Only one set of wheels?

You're running 615's, but want better treadwear, so you're headed toward a/s tires?

Get a good summer, and enjoy good treadwear with awesome handling. Falken 451/2's last really well, like 25k+.

Lol snow tires? Someones smoking some bad stuff. They are a summer tire and the understeer is the car itself. All subies have major understeer. A sway bar fixes that issue. OH I remember the ramen days so yeah totally understand the need for all seasons. I use to run all season for the same reason but never came close to find ones that would grip like a summer tire. No expereince with the Falken brand so I cant compare to those.
