The first problems came out just after tire shop. I went to install Pirellis and it went out fine. But the rear was rubbing! I have mildly lowered KW Clubsport & 12 mm spacers in rear. Trofeo R is rubbing all the time now and I have to take off spacers.

Tire itself looks great, it has a fat side profile just like in a genuine slick! But please note that Trofeo R is about 10-12 mm fatter than ordinary tires. I have fluently driven different tyres with this set up earlier. For example, right now I have OEM 19" M220s under the car and I can slip my fingers between the side fender and Michelin PS2. With Trofeo R & 18" OEMs wheels there in no room at all.

I'll tell you track experiences once I get rear working again.
