orderd some 275/35/18 RS4s instead.. seem to have a ton of great feeedback and for my skill level theyre perfect.
FWIW I replaced my last set of RS3s with RS4s and like them alot. Similar grip and they're just as communicative and predictable as the RS3 on the track. I think you'll dig them.

I hope so.. I actually really like my RS3.. The only reason I'm getting rid of them is because I noticed their production date is 2010! Most tracks/groups won't allow a tire older than 3 years old and bc of the age, I think I also may be loosing some grip on the track. They have tons of life left.. i been debating as keeping the rs3 and burning them up on the street.

This is news to me. They can heat cycle out though.

Default Time for new rubber

Anyone have experience with the Potenza S007A? New tire so thereís very limited info on it, but from what Iíve read itís supposed to be an extreme performance tire below RE-71 and above S-04. Price point looks good at $195 for 265/35/18.
