the test was completed while I was on vacation ... but, here is what we found

the test was conducted between
S-03
AVS Sport
P-Zero Nero

ride quality
The Nero was very comfortable feeling and was considered the best among the 3 tested but, the noise level of the Nero was in the middle with the S-03 taking the top spot

Performance
Steering response of the Nero was considered last among the tires tested but, it did offer a good amount of dry and wet grip but, not up to the level of the S-03 or the AVS Sport. The Nero did post the slowest lap times on the track in both dry and wet conditions. The conclusion, The Nero is a tire that delivers a high amount of performance while still offering a great deal of ride quality but, still has not surpassed the venerable S-03 Pole Position

They are truely a "Big Dog" Maximum performance tire if you can get past the UGLY sidewall markings. They were able to post lap times very close to the BFG KD's and S-03's

Blows chunks compared to the rest of the tires on that list. Not even in the same ballpark.
