Lol Probably. I have one data point below, but it's not great.
I do wonder if that softener stuff would help at all. I found a set of literal 2017 Sticker R7's in my friends garage when we were cleaning it out last week. I wonder what those might be like...

My only experience with a set of older Hoosiers recently was riding along when some some late-2018 ones were on the BRZ and they must have lived outside or something for some time because they literally had lower peak G's than Flaken 615's on data and lap times were the same pace as the 615's and could not go faster.
