So pretty good as tyres and a pot for plants then lol
I'll be totally honest - I took the proxies with me to Mallory Park doing 1.01 laps, didn't feel as grippy as I knew it should - threw the federals back on and did a 58 straight away :/
I do think it depends on driving style though as I know somebody who used to use them on his MX6 and absolutely loved the proxies
Guess the only way to find out then is take it on track, actually looking for another set to stick some proper track tyres on so I can really tell the difference so shall have to see what's about, anybody got any they can recommend?

At only £70 a corner (that's for a 265 35 18) they've got to be worth a punt. I've used all manner of tyre on my 400bhp Nissan 200SX track car and have found everything comes up short bar a true race tyre, a la R888/Direzza etc but I just don't have £800 at the moment for rubber. Or £800 for anything, come to think of it.
I've been running AD08r's on my Fiesta ST for the past year. Great tyre on the road, and more than capable enough for me on the track. They won't have the ultimate grip an R888r would have, but with me using the car every day I can't warrant the use of using something even more track orientated.
I'm currently using the nankang ns2r's on my 328 track car and while I found them an improvement over the federal rsr's I was using previously I'm finding myself wanting more grip. When I bought the nankang's I was in need of some track tyres quickly as I found the rsr's were cracking around the edge so I bought the medium compound nankang as thats what was in stock, I wish I had waited for the softer compound now. in the dry they are decent enough but in the wet they are useless.
On my 318is saloon I'm using avon zzr's and they feel slightly better than the nankangs in the dry but I'm not pushing them as much with the smaller engine, but in the wet they're night and day better. can still push fairly hard with plenty of confidence in most conditions and they only seem to struggle when you hit standing water.
