I'm trying to get an idea of how sticky the A048's are but am not having any luck. How would you compare them to PS Cups?

They are fairly similar apparently with maybe a slight edge to the Michelin (unconfirmed on an Elise), but with the A048 you get the advantage of "matched" tires and suspension. I doubt the price difference is worth it. You will get lower times by figuring out the car.

Well...at least in terms of fitting them on the wheels our cars come with, you can't run the PSC. They make suitable rears but there appear not to be useable fronts. Maybe there are some options if you change wheel diameters.

Lotus is working with Yokohama and developing an autocross or was it a road race tire? One or the other, anyway they are coing out with a softer compound tire for our car.

You can get a sense of what they may do from the present AO32 tire which is offered in regular and "S" compounds...
