Yeah totally agree with that. The problem with the RS2 compound is that it needs plenty of heat otherwise its like plastic. When you get some heat in them they are a great tyre and don't aquaplan in summer rain.I've just taken RS2 tyres off my STI Spec C as they have been completely rubbish for road use especially over the winter. They look nothing like the tyres pictured above BTW. The compound of the RS2 are 200, which is boardering on soft - but no near as soft as R888's. they have a stiff wall and i think a Y speed rating as you'd expect from a track tyre. I'll keep my RS2's for the summer on the track when its dry but not for anything else. The tyres pictured above cannot be road legal can they ? surely not?
