This is where people are going to start calling me a crazy asshole.

I've DD'd cups for over a year and they are not any where near as scary as many claim. If you have a good understanding of your abbility and their capability in the wet, then you'll be fine. It's been raining a lot here in Houston and my current set are nearly bald, which means oppo on demand during my 6:30am drive to work. You just have to understand that in the wet or early morning cold, you can't go 10/10ths (but you're on the road so shouldn't be anyway).

I've gone through two sets and had Nitto NT01s on the car before, and RE-11s before those. I like the Cups, but I'm considering a set of PSS to save about $400 and I haven't made it out to the track as much as I'd like to.

Oh, and my car is my DD. Except for flooding or serious downpours, then I take the Jeep.
