    Good tires can be expensive. I used to have some Bridgestone RE-01s that I loved, but they cost around $1100. RE-01s are discontinued and replaced with RE-11s which are not a directional tread pattern, but from reviews look to be quite good.

    You can also get cheaper tires that perform well, but won't last as long.. like the Cooper RS3-S

    I use to be a strong advocate for the V12s. After a tire shredded mid-turn and nearly caused a multiple car pile-up, I'd never recommend them. The Coopers I'm running (RS3-S), with 20mm less contact patch, can take corners as fast / faster than the V12s, and are around the same price.

    I've not had as poor an experience with the Ventus V12 Evos. Both my car and my wife's are outfitted with V12 Evos. However, they are a bit squishier than I'd like. Certainly squishier than Dunlop Direzza Star specs, though roadholding is similar. If Matty's review of the RS3S is accurate, they will be my next set of tires. Again, nothing wrong with my Ventus, I would just like a bit stiffer sidewall.

    I had the V12 Evos as well and loved them. Agreed on the soft sidewall comments, nice for a DD but not as great when pushed hard. You can compensate that a little bit by jacking up the tire pressures though (and getting a good alignment with more camber).

    I put at least 20k miles on mine and somewhere between 50-60 AutoX runs, so for the price I was pretty happy with what I got. They aren't a great AutoX tire but for someone learning I thought they did really well.

    I've heard Star Specs and all the really extreme tires aren't so great on a DD due to the firmness and the noise. I guess that's all a matter of opinion though.

    Currently running the Hankook RS3s, got a really good deal on them so I had to bite. They feel better than the V12s for sure but you won't notice it too much until you're really pushing it. They are more predictable and consistent I think. They aren't loud on the highway but they make some noise for sure.

    I think removing the cat before the turbo is worth the 100ish dollars.
