Do any of you folks have impressions of the RE-71R on track and street yet? I'm curious how it drives, since I can no longer replace my rear R888's due to lack of supply. It's a damn shame too, as the fronts are almost new.
Anyhow, I've used the R888R on my Focus, and they're fantastic on the track, but positively awful on the street - way too loud, needs a bit of warmup, and terrible traction when it's moist. I used to street drive R888's, but R888R's are a step worse for the street. I've got 2 sets of LSS wheels, so one will be a dedicated to R888R's for track days, but trying to find a good street tire that can also handle a wet or cold track day.
