they actually put turanzas on the autos, which are the far less sporty model.

I haven't tried them myself, but a lot of people in the corvette forums are fans of the GSD3's.

GY F1 GS-D3's are like glue.

I have only had them for two weeks now... so we will see about the 280 treadwear rating.

I have to be careful when driving hard because the torque steer is REALLY noticeable now. Up stifting near redline almost yanks the wheel out of my hand.

Cornering is confident and predictable all to way up to breaking loose. You can actually hear the tire biting (or wearing away).

Whats the best 50K mile treadlife rain tire?
What would I get if I didn't mind giving up 2 or 3 /10 in the
dry for evil gecko toe suction tires in the fast puddles.
How are these as high speed rain tires?
GoodYear F1 GS-D3's?
Potenza RE050A's?
HK Ventus HRII H405?



Thanks in advance.
