180 tread wear rating, that is a street tire category. Yet, they are claiming more traction and faster lap times than the old PSC? Shave it down a bit and these can be like the old Hankook RS3's or better! At 180, I'll just use them as street tires!

Looks like 265/35/19 and 285/35/19 will be the perfect upgrade for my new F80 M3.
