    Any help would be appreciated first and foremost. I ran an event last weekend with my bfg sport comp 2s (340 wear rating). The car has Cai and mac catback. I ran in Fstreet and won my class but took 2nd in Novice with pax. Fastest car of the day not in Novice class was a full second faster. (04 Z06 w/Nt05s). I'm wanting to be a little more competitive. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on springs, CC plates and better tires. My question is has anyone ran the Falken 615ks or khumo xs or the Nitto NT05s? Trying to stay with the 200 utgq tire in a 275 40 17. Thanks guys in advance.

    This is an old post, and I don't know what progress you've made, but the hot tires for 2016 (in order of decreasing overall performance) are:

    -Bridgestone RE71R
    -BFG Rival S
    -Kumho V70R

    Like you, I've run a ~300 treadwear tire so far this year, and am looking into selecting one of these three tires. Take a look at this link for a good read:
