Surprising grip & feedback

Johnno - March 30, 2021

I own a 2018 M2 BMW..In preparing for a ist track day I put Cup 2 tyres on the rear only with std run flats on the front . The rear Cup 2s easily matched the grip of my race cars AO 50 Yokohama tyres. I can’t wait to replace the fronts with Cup 2s as well. Overall Very Impressed.

Best Street Track + Tyre on Market

Leon_205 - February 25, 2021

Hands down the best road tyre I have used on a track. Wear is low, grip is ridiculous, can take a pounding lap after lap. Running these on my modified Golf R 7.5 (1600kg & 300kW) and got about 4 track days and 10,000kms of hard running. Compared to an R spec tyre these have slightly less grip (just) but the wear is significantly less, much quieter on the road and better in the wet. I agree with other comments - if you don't intent to track your car, this is not the tyre for you. I ran these tyres at 32psi hot, with a race wheel alignment and the wear was very consistent across the face of the tyre, the multi coupound structure really assists here.

Cup 2 & Super Sprinting

Michael - June 23, 2020

I use these in the NSW Super Sprint Championship on a BMW M2C and they give consistent grip are long wearing (on a race car doing racing things) and very predictable all the things I like at 220kph into turn 1. Wasted if just used on the public roads.
