I just noticed that Tire Rack was closing out the Z1 v1. A great tire but they did get greasy after 15 min. What originally attracted me to the Star Specs was the price which was significantly lower than other tires in its class yet performed as well. As they got more popular, the prices kept creeping up. Which was fine until the Hankook RS3s came along. The RS3 are superior in dry grip and lasted longer although you did give up the ability to run them in sustained sub-50's temps and required a warm up period.

Nonetheless, I will be keeping a close eye on this new offering from Dunlop!

I have the same complaint about the name. Direzza Z1 Sport Star Specs? Now we have to add a "II" to the end? Really?
