Those Stoners look very cool!
If you prioritize dry weather handling over anything else, here is a good summary of the current Extreme Performance Summer Tires.

Dry grip being the only thing I care about the #1 time for me is still take the ZII's.
When you have modified your cars exhaust like we have who cares about road noise? :lol:
What is this thing "road noise" that people keep mentioning?
Looking forward to another win this year.
I have used the Dunlop's, Hancook's, and the BFG's for autocrossing. I like the Dunlop the best.
I'm with Dave O. On the ZII's!
Started with the first gen, then onto the ZII's and I will purchase them again unless of course they come out with a ZIII!
Last years ZII's did not have the name "Star Spec" on them so the new ones are which are called DZII Star Specs are reallys DZIII's .
It's weird naming as long as they make them they will be my only Summer tire.
Or maybe they're the ZIV.
The actual sequence has been ZI, ZISS, ZII, ZIISS.
Direzza ZII vs Direzza ZII Star Spec
I know the Star Spec seems to be better, but it is also more expensive. Im saving about 100 going with the ZII.
How much more significant are the Star Spec. I "might" be doing auto crossing. But i do drive spirited
ZII are just last years (2014) tire and the Star Spec ZII's are the 2015 version. Not much difference but a little improved grip for an already very good gripping tire.
The original Dunlop Autocross tire was just called "Star Specs" until the ZII's were released 2 years ago.
You can not go wrong with either one.
anyone care to comment on 215/40/r17 vs 215/45/r17 ? our R53 is on stock R90 17x7 wheels
if 45's wont rub I'm also considering bridgestone re-71r
As I posted above......215/45 fills the wheel well a bit better than the 40's do for me. No rubbing.
If your car is at stock height, go with the 45's.
Mine is lowered a bit on the TSW V1 springs and look perfect IMO.......:cornut:
Welp, since I didn't need new tires this past summer I'll now be looking to spring to replace the summer tires. We'll see what's on the market come March.
Nathan, kinda a reverse blessing to that statement. Should be some new rubber next spring, perhaps another set of custom wheels.
