You must be in Europe; I’m not seeing either as DOT approved / available in the US as of today in the States. F1 is a great tire; hope we get A6 here and I wonder how it will compare to the 4S.+ Yokohama AD08RS (AD09 maybe when they are completely available ?)
+ Goodyear Eagle F1 A6
I have these on our '94 as well -have been extremely happy with them. Hoping to try the newer RT-660 which is supposed to be a big upgrade from the 615K+I have Falken AZENIS RT615K+ on my 1994. I am very happy with the ride and limited road noise. Seem to handle well although I have not pushed them as of yet. Best part was price, for the size you need 17/18 = $732 from Tire Rack. When I had my Titans on the car I ran 215/40R17 front and 265/35R18 on the rear.
The 660k supposedly has improved grip at the expense of durability/longevity. This is why Falken continues to produce the 615k+.I have these on our '94 as well -have been extremely happy with them. Hoping to try the newer RT-660 which is supposed to be a big upgrade from the 615K+
Indeed, and I'm totally okay with that. The DOT codes typically get old before I can wear them out anyway.The 660k supposedly has improved grip at the expense of durability/longevity. This is why Falken continues to produce the 615k+.
Agree. A lot of these performance differences really only appear at the racing circuit. You just can't generate the required temperatures and cornering loads on the street. You might be able to feel differences in sidewall rigidity and things like turn-in responsiveness on the street though.For street driving or even fast canyons I doubt you would be able to tell the difference between the 615K+ and 660. For me it came down to price as I don't track the car any more and just needed a competent street tire. I didn't see where the additional cost of the 660 would provide any significant benefit.
Sorry typo...fixed. So will the rear 255/40-17 (as opposed to 245/40-17) throw TCS?215/40R16 is not a common size. Didn't see that size available on either Tire Rack or Discount Tire although could be available through less reputable outfits. Unlikely you will find that size in a high performance name brand.
Why do you want to mount up a 215/40R16 when 215/45R16 is the OEM size?
