Yoko Advan Neova AD08R - now RS ?

I used to run the "R" and notice they have now changed to "RS" - has anyone experience of them both and if so is there any differences?

I think the RS is a more "Eco" friendly tyre ? so probably adjusted for better wear, improved efficiency and less noise, which probably means the old R is a better tyre for Evo use :/

The treadwear rating number might give a clue to intended usage/application?

Yeah the treadwear has changed from 180 to 200 to keep it e-marked, on track they're not meant to perform as well but I'd imagine the on-road performance won't be too different and wear should be less.
