Question What would be a better choice?

Between a set of Kosei RT-mesh with Falken Azenis RT-215 and Prodrive P1 with Pirelli Zero nero all arround, the desicion making is becoming very difficult for me. Please some advice will be more apreciated if comes from somebody that actually have them! Tanx.

The RT-215 is a LOUD max performance tire that has exceptional grip on dry pavement, hydroplanes at a lower speed than most other tires, and tramlines quite a bit in normal street driving. It's an autox favorite, and almost not a street tire. I ran them in SoCal for a while, but I wouldn't have them if I lived in NorCal.

A little background on your intended use might bring more comments.
