Kind of like the suspension thread, I want to establish an easy to find/search list of tires and how well they perform compared to R comps and adjacent in performance summer tires. As always, run a 205 on a 8", run a 225 on a 9", run over yourself you're in SM.
Assumptions: 2 minute road course, 2-3 miles in length, the NT-01 will do a lap in 2 minutes, 205/50R15.
Notes: A 225/45R15 will be -.75 to -1 second faster than a 205.
