Honda FK2 type r Tyre Review Highlights

What a great tyre!!! Price point at time of purchase (March 2019) was less than both Michelin PS4S's and Continental SC6 that the car was running on fitted from factory. I think the most relatable way to describe the Supersport tyre on the FK2 put simply, it really complements the chassis, the factory Continental's are very good in dry conditions, there is not any appreciable gain with the Supersport here but in wet conditions the Supersport is far superior, the SC6 gave a vage feeling/sensation of little to no grip at low speed which was strange because the grip was there if you pushed past this and lent on the tyre harder but it wasn't reassuring, the Supersport has addressed this with a really good feeling in wet conditions at all speeds and maintained all the dry grip levels and beautiful precision handling that Honda engineers intended at all speeds in the dry at an advantageous price point over brands and with just over 10k miles coved at point of writing this the wear rate is excellent too, I estimate I still have another 5k felt in the front tyres (car is factory standard) compared to scraping to the 10k mark with the SC6 after rotating twice. I will definitely buy the Supersport again! Enjoy your drive! Wrighty

I have to say, I believed the hype around these tyres. I changes from sport contact 6 to these and I'm disappointed.

At slow speeds they are good, Comfortable and the starting is noticeably lighter, but that's whhe positivity ends I'm afraid.

At speed the tyre is less responsive than the contact 6 and feels like the tyre wall has a lot more give/flex. When the tyre actually grips under moderate acceleration it kind of upsets the whole stability of the car. It's hard to describe what I mean by that to be honest. The grip while cornering and acceleration at the same time is not solid, firm and smooth like the contact 6, it's jerky.

My advise would be although the contact 6 will not last you long as maybe the PS4S will, it's a better tyre and the OEM tyre of choice for a reason.
