    Street tire info = irrelevant to me.

    Some of those tires may fall off more then others when they get hot. The info gathered at that test is still useful, but not everything we need to know.

    we require consistency for many laps rather than outright pace for 1 or 2 laps. Perfect example is the old rt-215's. They were super quick for a lap or two, after that they turned into the greasiest nasty tires you could imagine

    Then there is the issue differece between each tire? I think each tire needs different air pressure, camber, etc. The car has to be setup for the tires.

    ya.. i sure have... anyone have any questions?

    cliff notes: ad08's are much grippier & they last much longer than ad07's.. behave like r-comps almost.
