Astonishing grip

CadSpeed - May 6, 2021

Astonishing improvement in grip over the standard supplied Bridgestones on my Honda Type R. To the extent that the limits appear to be so huge that you don't want to test the limit off a track, this, obviously at the expense of grip in the wet, however, I would say that the handling is very predictable and let's be honest, if you chose this tyre as a year-round fit then your most likely know what you're doing and are a capable driver so you will know the limits. 5/5 would not choose any other tyre.

Surprising grip & feedback

Johnno - March 30, 2021

I own a 2018 M2 BMW..In preparing for a ist track day I put Cup 2 tyres on the rear only with std run flats on the front . The rear Cup 2s easily matched the grip of my race cars AO 50 Yokohama tyres. I can’t wait to replace the fronts with Cup 2s as well. Overall Very Impressed.

Best Street Track + Tyre on Market

Leon_205 - February 25, 2021

Hands down the best road tyre I have used on a track. Wear is low, grip is ridiculous, can take a pounding lap after lap. Running these on my modified Golf R 7.5 (1600kg & 300kW) and got about 4 track days and 10,000kms of hard running. Compared to an R spec tyre these have slightly less grip (just) but the wear is significantly less, much quieter on the road and better in the wet. I agree with other comments - if you don't intent to track your car, this is not the tyre for you. I ran these tyres at 32psi hot, with a race wheel alignment and the wear was very consistent across the face of the tyre, the multi coupound structure really assists here.
