With a new contender tire winning in quite a few classes at Nats in 2019, I'm curious if anyone else is jumping the RE71R/ Rival S 1.5 ship this season.
I am considering the Yoks since I may have enough camber for themWill continue with Bridgestones as I'm not going to use Yokos in Street until they can survive with less camber.
If I were in STH, I'd be seriously considering the Yokos and trying to decide whether I could tune them & my driving before the Las Vegas Tour.
Any reasons you feel like disclosing lol?So after speaking with a few national champions that have driven on the A052s, RE71Rs, and Rival S 1.5s, I ended up passing on the A052s for now and running the Rival S 1.5s for this season.
Not at all. Speaking with Brian Peters, Alex Piehl, and Jon Lugod, the A052 need a ton of camber, like more than -3 degrees to keep them happy, otherwise they wear away very quickly and worse on our pig heavy FWD platform. Since I'm only doing 1 national event this season, the return on investment of winning and them lasting less than 6 months isn't worth it to me.Any reasons you feel like disclosing lol?
I’ve heard the rivals are trickier than the 71s in the wet.

If we ever get an autox season going again, I'll probably buy a set for testing.So another contender might be getting thrown into the 200tw tire wars. Falken Azenis RT-660 Tire Test: Autocross and Track | Articles | Grassroots Motorsports
I know the tire is primarily supposed to be used for the SSC classed toyobaru's but the data and price point look very promising.
