Mind you these are my track wheels and tires and not what I will be running. just running them in the interum till the RACs come in. I got the RT-615's as a track tire and I'm not on the level for a slick yet. Also with all the warm days I'm not going to keep my snows on.
oh..cuz im sorry they suck ass. They are decent for AX if you have a light car, but on heavier cars they only last 1-2 laps. NT-05s I heard are much better but dont have any personal experience.

Not exactly what I've heard or read but I'll be sure to let you know after I try them on the track this summer. I will probably get NT-05's to replace them afterwards because they are much more suited for the role I need them to play and like I said these were a alternative and are mostly going to be a street tire till I get my RACs so for their duty right now I'm very happy with them.
