Straight line traction is decent as I just cut some low 1.8 60' times (un-preped track) and it was my first time launching with this car at a track.
I'm running 225/45/17 size. Wanli S-1099's.
Hope that helps.
This is my commuter/daily driver car so they work well and noise level is better than the Sumitomo's I had before. I think it boils down to what you want from the tires. If you like the twisties you won't like these tires because the softer sidewalls flex too much and don't give a "connected" feeling. They are not horrible, but they don't hold a candle to the ZR Sumitomo or some ZR Continentals I've had before.
Overall I'd rate the Wanli tires as follows: 1= worse, 10= best
Sidewall Stiffness: 7.0
Traction Dry: 7.5
Traction Wet: don't know yet
Noise level: 8
Rim guard: 9
Wear: don't know yet
Here is how I'd rate the Sumitomo HTRZII:
Sidewall Stiffness: 9.5
Traction Dry: 9.0
Traction Wet: 8.0
Noise level: 6.0
Rim guard: 7.5
The links are of eBay and are not for selling anything, I just posted these up to see what they are like. Thanks!
I can get them both for about the same price also.
H rated = 210 kmh = 130mph...

Cooper Zeon ZPT
little better in the dry.
Go with the cheapest, I'd say.
And God DAMMIT, ONE thread really is plenty about it.
