Trying to decide on my next set of tires.

The XS would be 215/45/16 and 255/40/17 and $490

The R1Rs would be 225/45/16 and 275/40/17 $780

And that's where I am stuck at, will the slightly wider and lower treadwear of the R1R be worth spending the extra $300?

What are you using them for? If autox, what are the temperatures like where you will be using them. If it's good and hot, get the kumhos. If it rains, get the toyos.

not worried about rain, will be using them for HPDEs and autox, and I'm in oklahoma so it will be hot :)

Tire test

The Kuhmos were a bit faster than the Toyos in this test.

awesome, I've been looking for a comparison exactly like that and I kept coming up empty handed

thanks :)

looks like I'll be going with the XS, especially after reading that bit about the slow turn in with the R1R

well that and the whole saving $300 thing ;)
