The RT615K+ is quiet, so it’s probably a better choice for dual-purpose usage if you dislike tire noise as much as I do. You cannot go wrong with RT615K+. Price is the only reason I want to try the RSRR. I had RSRs on a previous car and the noise really bothered me on the street. It didn’t matter on the track though.
    Lemme what you think in the comparison between the two. Tire noise isn't really a concern for me so whatever one gives good grip/decent treadlife while not getting greasy in hot temps is the one for me.

    I picked up TD Pro Race 3. They don’t clear my brakes. :( I ordered 5mm spacers.

    Azenis RT615K+ is great for track work, not the best option for autocross. They don't heat up quick enough for autox, but are perfect for track days. I've only done one track day on mine so far, but this is my experience from countless track hours with the old RT615K and the new RT615K+ on my Sentra Lemons racecar.

    Woods, did your wheel spokes actually touch the caliper or just too close for comfort?

    615 always overheated too much for me in the past. I'm in love with hankook RS4 for a combo of long lasting and grip. I haven't looked to see if they have anything in our sizes, but I kind of doubt it.

    Nice! What are the specs of the wheels? Atleast its a little better that you don't need as big a spacer for the wheels.

    They actually touch. A 2-3mm spacer would be fine but I ordered 5MM H&R because Whoosh had stock.

    17x7 et38. If they were 7.5 I’d be in the clear.

    Not my favorite mod but it’ll eventually pay for itself since I can tow a small tire trailer now. I’m telling myself that anyway..
