Otherwise, I felt the car accepted the tires very well. They did begin to go away after six events, but will stick if you give them time to heat up.

Edit, please change six events to six days, or 18 heat cycles.
I also ran the BFG R1's this season. Slightly different set up due to needing the front clearance running Clubsports: APEX 18X9.5F and 10.5R with 265/35F and 285/30R. No rubbing, good turn in if the above two points are used. The grip has been fantastic for first 5 days (20 cycles), great for the last 2 days but times went down by 1-1.5 secs. I am quitting while ahead and ordering the same R1's for next year. Couldn't be happier. Now for brake ducts...MT
