They aren't stupid slippery when cold but after pushing them hard for a short time they turn on. I was able to lift on corner entry and get the back end to rotate. I would really prefer to keep them on 100% of the time but with a tread wear of 140 I'm thinking that might be stupid. Near the limit they communicate with a bit of noise so they don't just give up without warning. Overall, I really like them so far. Road Atlanta is June 4th so I'll have video and data (to compare to last year when the car was bone stock) so that should be an interesting comparison, especially if the temps are near 100 degrees like last year.
Thanks for the feedback. I am wanting to step down to an 18 inch setup when my tires wear down, leaning towards apex wheels. Wondering if it would be stupid to run the RS3s in a daily situation. I have read that they aren't very good for rain which is really the only thing holding me back about them.
