BMW Z3 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Federal Evoluzion ST 1 given 82% (225-50-16-)
Driving on track for 200 spirited miles
I bought these tires because they were really inexpensive and I had a spare set of wheels. I use them for daily driving, but also on track. They aren't the fastest tire, but they do behave predictably when pushed hard. They have good (loud) audible feedback, which is useful in a track tire. Having slightly less grip on a track tire is actually more fun for me and also less physically taxing (my car has stock belts and seat). So even though I have faster tires, I think these are more fun. I would buy them again if I found them for the same low price.

Writing about the Maxxis Victra VR1 given 73% (205-55-16-)
Driving on track for 150 spirited miles
I bought these tires as old stock manufactured 4-5 years ago. Available from Maxxis direct for just $59.95 per tire. That's less than half the price of most 200TW tires. Are they any good? Despite being 4-5 years old, they compare favorably to 200TW tires of that era. I have lap times in equivalent cars that show the performance is about the same as an NT05, RE11A, RT615K, etc. No, they aren't nearly as fast as the new autocross-focused tires. However, they are a good budget 200TW endurance tire. On track, I like a loud tire for audible feedback. These are sort of quiet even when pushed hard. That's the only downside. I haven't tried them in the rain.

Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 spirited miles
The best tyres I ever had after using alot of other brands. The design is beautiful to start.. Making about 30.000km and still alot to use. The dry and wet are awesome no issues, cornering is good. Confort they are very good but not the best at it, they more sporty! The noise I would say also OK, in noise you can find better ones. Definitely will buy them again! I recommend

Writing about the Continental Sport Contact given 59% (145-40-17-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 12000 spirited miles
Dry grip is quite startling but sudden break away is a problem. My car is light and powerful but in the wet the tyre still performs well. Wear is OK(ish) approx 12k of mixed cruising and hard driving. These have performed better for grip than the Perelli P6000 that were fitted before but obviously wear rates are higher. The side walls are softer on the Contis too which took a little getting used too.
