For track use there is no comparison. Get the R6. Stick well, wear is phenominal.

V710 is the fastest i.e. if you're doing just a qualifying lap but if you want to do a 20 min session I would go with the R6. The BFG R1 should last the longest out of the 3 and the V710 should die the fastest since it's an auto-x compound.

If you're spending money on Hoosiers go for the A6. Even though it's supposed to be an auto-x tire, it works great for lapping.

I'm currently running r1s on my miata- they're long lasting and predictable, but certainly not as sticky as the kumhos or hoosiers. But if this is your first set of r-comps and are mostly for PDX/HPDE, I think they'd be a very good choice.

Be advised, they are very stiff and will need less pressure than most other R-comps.
