Direzzas

It's that time again in the east- woohoo! track rats rejoice.

I have a a set of PS2s I will go through quickly before moving onto the next set. I am considering Direzza ZIIs, but wanted to know everyone's opinion on Direzzas vs. Pilot Super Sports. I ask because they are close to the same price, in fact, PSSs are $100 cheaper.

Direzzas only make sense if they last longer, have better grip on-track, etc. than PSSs.

Open to other R-comp suggestions, but looking for a tire that can be driven off and on-track. off track I can change out to my stock 19s.

Thanks for your thoughts in advance.

I have the Direzza SSI... can't say enough about them! I'm a NE track guy and like the fact they hold in wet/cold conditions.

I'd be interested to hear how the Direzza's hold up with respect to noise on the street. They seem to get loud when they get about 1/2 tread....where the Michelin's (and Bridgestones) stay quiet all the way down.

after reading additional reviews online, I think I will have to go with AD08s. It's a tad more than ZIIs, but the reviews are very positive.

RE-11s will be my next street tire after I wear out the PS2's this weekend. I have them on the 2002 M3 and they are fabulous.

I thought the PSS had a pretty soft sidewall, which makes them great on the street but not quite as good at 9/10ths on the track.
