I met some guys that had the ar-1s and he really like them. they are a 100 tread waer tire so they should be pretty sticky. I think the other tires area way out of their league

Here an article I found about the ar-1 vs toyos

Aren't the Advans 200 tw "street" tires?

The AR-1s are true R-comps.

Not exactly two tires I'd expect soemeone to cross-shop.

What are you using them for? Trackdays?
