For what I do, YES. Don't confuse that with they are the best tire out there because I'm sure they are better. BUT, they are a very good street tire for 'spirited' driving with occasional track or autocross time. Not to mention the price point is very hard to beat. I've been very happy with them that's all I can say about it.

And very expensive!

I bought used PS2s off EBay - 90% tread for $70 each - new they are $310.
Check EBay fur used high end tires - the F1 are too new to have any used yet, FWTW.
Craig,

There are no F1 Assym. nor PS2s in my size 315, 17s. Thanks for the tip, I will check evilbay. By the way, I am glad the BMW work out for you. I am sure you detailed it and it cleaned up nicely. Nice car. I am glad that I can help.

I push my car pretty hard on the track and every chance I have - constant spirit driving, where possible; and have no complaints with the Sumis. Once more, size (315 rears) is an issue and not much variety out there. I tried the Dunlops 8000 and rather have the Sumis, The BF's are pretty good also, I'd say better than the Sumis for the track... but again, for the price/value - if you're not looking for those 100/sec. the Sumis are the way to go - M2c's.
