For as much as they will be on the car in the summer, I will be happy if the A052s last for 4K miles on the street. [wink] [:)]
How are you liking those things? That was my other choice, but I heard they wear worse than RT660's and RE-71r's. I'm going to try them next on my spare set of wheels I think.

They are not even mounted on the Dekas yet, but will be by late spring. [driving]

If I ever go with another 225/45-16, it will probably be the Nankang AR-1s for ~$40.00 less EACH or their NS-2Rs for ~$60.00 less each than the A052s. [wink]

Those AR-1s look promising as well but for track. I was looking for a better "street" tire that would get up to temp quickly. So far these RT660's are pretty good, but I'm going to try the AR-1s for track use. Theyve had good feedback.

Truthfully, IF I would have known about the NS-2Rs back when I bought the A052s, I would have gone with them for their; lower price, better rain grooving, substantially wider tread width (and the A052 is already the widest of the 'majors' in this size!), and $240.00 overall lower co$t. [wink]

What's the info on those NS-2R's? I havent really heard anything about them. I'm in SoCal, and dont dd this car, so wet traction is of zero concern to me. Do they heat up pretty quick?

I don't know, and have not heard anything.

But Phils, their biggest dealer in the USA, could probably give you some insight/intell about them. [wink]

They just seem to be a bit more 'streetable' to me than the A052s, why I even mentioned them.
