Belated Xmas present
New rubber and not for the wrist for a change!
After two sets and more of 40,000km of road & track with the ad08r I decided to go for something a bit different and went for the ps4s:
As someone who uses a single set of wheels for the street & the track the ad08r - steer clear of the ad08rs if you're after performance - is a fantastic choice: superb grip, easy to control at the limit and can take a lot of abuse as long as you manage heat & pressure appropriately. Construction is typical of japanese high-performance tyres with super stiff sidewalls and a soft compound peeling off copiously on track days but it will clean itself nicely after a few kilometers of highway use:
I expect the ps4s to be a notch lower in terms of absolute grip while providing a bit more comfort, although I've never had any complaint about the 08 despite being on aftermarket suspensions. I don't go to the track as much as I used to as such I don't mind the potential time penalty.
Anyway, one more shot for the road, I love the sidewall prints:

Wishing everybody a great week-end!
