Suck with lots of camber braking, but great performance street tire for the price IMO.

I just bought two for the front of my GTO. At $99 a tire, what's not to love!

SportsCar did a street tire test in their last issue and they liked the RS3s, not as good as Star Specs or RE-11s but right behind them IIRC.

Damn, all kinds of hate on the RS2s! I like some others better, too, but they're still pretty good.

SS and RE11s aren`t in the right size for the miata project!

Bump. I didn't like the RS2's on my miata, but at $71 ea 245/45/17 I'm giving 'em a shot for street tires.

wow i'm amazed at the negative comments on these. maybe it is because they were the first summer tires i've ever owned but they felt great as DD street wheels.

I liked them much better than the Toyo T1S and Kumho MX.
They are sticky but not as good as a top of the line street tire.

It's because most folks in here are comparing them to the tippy top of the street tire heap. They're still better than most summer tires out there.
