Given 64% while driving a Mazda RX8 (225/45 R17) on track for 4,000 spirited miles
Fine on the road but on track they roll up the rubber alot which so ended up with big strip of rubber 'flapping' off the tyre!Maybe they got too hot.

Given 87% while driving a Lotus Elise (225/40 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
I used to have RE040 on my first Elise but their grip was only average in the dry and merely acceptable in the wet. My second Elise had AD07's as standard and again they were OK but nothing special so I tried some AD08 on the rear and the transformation was not quite what I was expecting. Once the tyres were warmed up the dry grip is very good but the important thing was how much more progressive they are. Driving right up to and over the limit is not much more confidence-inspiring. Their wet grip is also better than my old ADO7 and miles better than RE040's. Deep water can be a problem but that would be the same for most high performance tyres. The other thing is that they were quieter than my AD07's. It's just a pity I can't get them in 175/55 16's for the front.

I would never buy anything else.

Given 86% while driving a Ford Puma 1.7 (195/50 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Excellent tyres, they grip hard in the dry practically eliminating the squealing understeer I get with lesser tyres. the turn in is also a lot sharper due to the stiffer construction it makes the ride a little harder but its worth it. The wet grip is good showing good communication with progressive breakaway. however they do tend to aquaplane a little earlier in standing water than other not so extreme summer tyres. conclusion if you want a tyre for the road but also want some fun on the track these are up to the job!
