Great BUT......

Trippy1te - January 29, 2020

They are an amazing tire I bought them in August for my 350 Z I’ve driven about 5000 miles on them (now January) and they already need replacing wires are starting to show (I have never drifted on these) I have launched the car maybe four times which causes a little bit of tire spin but almost instantly grips so there’s no way that these tires should wear out this fast

    Best SCCA Cup car tire ever made

    Joseph - December 29, 2019

    I've read a lot of negative comments about this tire. I'd like to offer my thoughts, a consumer should always educate themselves about a product before purchase. I see many comments placing fault on the manufacturer for a specific product not meeting the consumers expectations. Researching a product before purchase is the consumers responsibly. The Cup 2 tire is NOT an every day tire. The manufacturer clearly states this, and DOESN'T recommend it for such use. But if you're racing SCCA or Trans-Am This is the tire to have. And yes, the tire is good for one race... Sorry that's just the nature of the beast.
