Gotta share this deal from Custom Wheel Outlet on BFG R1 265/35/18 for $196.99 per tire. Shipping is free and no tax for me in Texas (which is rare these days) so $787.96 for four.

I'd prefer to run the 275s, but I can't pass up this price, and I hear they run wide anyway.

I keep posting non-NT-01 tire feedback on this site as I think most folks would be interested, but I guess I could start another thread.

That said, most feedback puts the R1 with more grip/faster than the NT-01. I can only get 4 track days (7-8 hours) from the NT-01s so I hope to get close to that from the R1s.

It's been years but I found the BFG R1 to be much faster than the NT-01. The 265 is wider than the 275 NT-01 also...someplace I have pictures comparing them, and the 265 R1 looks like a 285 compared to the 275 NT01.

I thought R1's were comparable to R7's.

Yeah they probably are, and the R1S is probably better than R7. In the old days I found the R1s to be very long wearing vs Hoosiers also, granted I was comparing it to an A6.

I've ran Hankook C51s and Toyo RRs. I'm starting to under stand what a tire feels like when it's heat cycled out.

Something to consider when departing from the NT01s. Although an E9X M3 may cord a tire before it heat cycles out.
