Supposed to be very sticky and responsive tires. Only downside is they are a bit on the heavy side.

AWESOME tires !

You will LOVE them and they BLOW away the stock tires on the track. Maybe not as noticeable on the street but on the track they perform !

Another PLUS side is they have a beautiful and aggressive looking Tread design. I love them although my first choice was the Yoko AD08's but they were out of stock at Tire Rack.

Yeah, the AD-08's and RE-11's were my two final choices. RE-11's had more of a selection on size. Could only get 30 sidewalls on the rears.

Yeah, that.

Compared to their predecessors (RE-01Rs), they're better in the rain and don't get too loose in the cold.

If they're anything like the RE-01r's than you should love them, those were my favorite tire (E46 days) after trying out several high performance brands outside of rcomps

I either want to try these next AD08 or NTO5 next, very hard decision

RE-11 is a great tire. Thats what I am currently running on my M, much more compromising that the Nitto NT05 but close in performance and all around better tire that the PS2 except the turn in is a bit dead, but I have never had a tire that had turn in feel like the PS2.

i almost got the Re11s but got a smokin deal on the NT05s

i will probably go with the re11 or ado8 next just to try them.

How is road noise with them? I know crusing home at slow speeds, my car sounds like it has VERY aggressive nobby tires- Not too bad but noticable over the ps2s

That was one of my biggest problems with the NT05s they were loud and just got louder as they wore. Also the ride with the NT05 was brutal. I find that the RE11 is much more compliant and much quiter without giving up much dry performance, but gaining some wel performance. I want to try the AD08 on of the only tires in this class I haven't ever tried.

The new tread pattern helps a great deal with avoiding the cupping that occurred in the RE-01Rs. So, even after putting some miles on them the road noise doesnít really increase.

Something that I didnít mention earlier is that they have very stiff sidewalls. The tires will not share the burden (with the suspension) of cushioning the ride.

Yea!! They are on. Just have to go pick up the beast now!

Weather finally dried up so it should be a weekend to test them out.

I was deciding between these or AD08s.

I was worried 285/35/19 would rub since I'm lowered on H&R (10" +20) so I got the ad08's, 295/30/19.

I'm getting them put on this Tuesday.

If anyone can confirm 285/35/19 RE-11's will not rub when lowered with offsets like mine please PM me or let me know!

They are on and have had a little fun with them so far. On cold mornings I think they are slightly rougher than the PS2's until they get warm.
They have been very fun so far and very confidence inspiring. Can't wait to get into them more!

Been through two sets as street tires and absolutely love them. The grip is far superior to the PS2s, but they don't last nearly as long.

Well, I had the RE-01A Pole Positions on my G35 Coupe (19" wheels) and they performed really well. I assume the RE-11 are stickier.

The RE-11 tire is a great street and track performance tire. We have been using it in Time Attack racing for the past season. We used the RE01R last season. This year, the RE-11 helped us bring home a championship this year!

The RE-11 does have some good revisions when compared to the RE01R. The outside wall is now stiffer than before, but the inside wall isnt as stiff as the outside now. this allows the tire to flex more under load, helping the tire to maintain a larger flat contact patch. Hope you like them!

The RE-11 are the best tires we have tried and have outperformed both the PS2 and the Nitto NT05.

I would highly recommended this tires over anything else out there.

RE-050 are the only Pole Positions that I'm aware of. If that be the case (and I'm guessing it is since the RE-050 PP was stock on the 350z), the RE-01R was and the RE-11 is better in every way, other than wear.

What? Are you sure you don't mean NT05's????

There's no way they can outperform the NTO1 (track Rcomp)....is there?
