    it's their new entry into the hi-po street tire catagory Sport Z1- they didn't come out w/ it in time to make it elgible for ST* competition, but should be elgible next season

    it's pretty new so I don't know much about it

    Hmmm ... nice chunky tread blocks with good pricing. I will keep them in mind. Thanks for the heads up.

    Those WedSports are pretty. Any idea about weight/brake clearance? It's $1400 a set?

    BTW, best avatar ever.

    I have read between 14.5 and 14.9 pounds for the 17x8s I ordered. Brake clearance? Not sure but I would think they would work with the STi Brembos.

    The avatar is a good one - perfect for this time of year (Oktoberfest). Check out the beer thread. http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/showth...128490&page=94

    Nah, no good. Joe (55 STX) had those last year and this year he switched to the Falkens. He liked the Falkens much more than those BFG tires.

    Hmmmm ... plenty of time to decide ...

    Big tread blocks do not always make good autox tires.

    Yup. Tires with much open void area just don't work as well.

    anyone autoX with RE01r's?

    I took an onramp (curvey one) at 90 today and didn't squeal or nothing... I'm looking forward to next summer's autoX with them.

    I think a few. They're one of the tires to have.

    I'd second the nay on the BF's. I think there are really four tires to be looking at (probably five w/ the new Dunlop- so new not much out on it yet). Budget- Hankook Z212, Falken Azeni's, budget + RE01R's, Neovas

    the Dunlops price falls under the Advans and Bridgestones, time will tell on the performance.

    I ran RE01R's this past season, nice tire no two ways about it Ofcourse I was "smart" and bought mine early, before the $100 off coupon came out
