  • Tracking the RT-615's. Looking for feedback!!

    Looking for general feedback on how they perform. I just picked up a set 225/255. Thx

    I loved them on my M3, I assume you're using 17" wheels, because us guys with 16's have to run the hankooks or stick with so2-so3's.

      17" CE28n's with PS2. Did you track or autox them? If so. how did they do on extended runs..

        I have some friends with NSX's and they love them on the track.

          I have autocrossed on mine once. Unfortunately, my alignment was a mess so I can not give constructive feedback yet. They are fantastic on the street and in the rain. I would assume that since they are a bit less temperature sensitive than the RT-215s that they will be better suited to the track.

          Post a pic of the wheels on the car!

            Cool, I will report back after I run on them at TWS.

            pm me your email address and I will send you an image. I can't figure out how to upload an image

                I picked up a set a few months ago, but unfortunately I have not gotten them mounted yet. I've got my snow setup on the car right now and with the occasional snow storms and the recent dip in temperatures (try -40 to -60 F with the windchill), I don't anticipate putting the Azenis on any time soon.

                    Having had 3 track events on Mich PS2 and transitioning to the RT-615. Falken is a couple of notch's above PS2 in shear dry grip. Both are very quiet at the limits and have the same progressive breakaway feel. The Falken has better turn in especially after several heated laps. Both are easy to drive at the limits. The Falken handles heat much better. Breaking distance is about the same. In my opinion the Falken beat out my old PS2 in every catergory especially cost except wet traction. Although, the Falken offered great wet traction. I have no experience with wet traction on the track. I only have 2k miles on them. So far I am happy with the wear. $500 shipped to the door is a heck of a deal.

                      I agree, I autox'd them, time trial'd them, and instructed at hpde's. I had to wet them at a ax due to heat, but when driving 10/10th will do that to many tire types in my experience, this is on a fairly stock e36 m3. I suspect the s2k will be easier on tires (guess I'll find out in 3 wks)
