    Verdict:

    The tires perform excellent in dry handling, and even performed quite well at two autocross events. The extra-stiff sidewalls add instant turn response and hold the car during sharp cornering.

    Verdict:

    The RT615k+ feels great after the initial layer of compound and release had worn off the traction on and off the course has been great. On the track they get to temp quick and keep at the optimum temps with little to no overtemps.

    Verdict:

    These tires do not break traction at all under dry condition, they are extremely sticky. Wet condition is also very impressive.

    Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar G:2
    Passenger · Summer · 2010 · Passenger - Ultra High Performance Summer
    Verdict:

    These are a terrible autocross tire though. They need very high temps to work, and unless you've got wicked ambient heat at the autocross, you just aren't going to get any traction out of these.
