    Seeing how the RS4 in 295/40/18 is on indefinite backorder, it looks like I need to try a different tire.

    I have a discussion on the FB group, but figure the audience may be higher here.

    Does anyone run the Falken 615k+?

    As much as I want to jump to NT01, some HPDE orgs locally won't allow them until higher run groups.

    Anyone with Falken experience?

    Do a search and there was another thread on the Falkens. In general I like them as do others. I still think the NT01 is the way to go though. ;)

    I am torn. Right now, I'd have to drive them to the track. Is that a problem with the NT01?

    I drove mine to and from the track with no issues. It doesn’t rain much here but I’d be careful driving them in standing water.

    I drove my Boss with Notto NT-01’s on the street, no problem. Depending upon your alignment, she may want to turn a bit easier with the Nittos on the street. Not really Darty, but you have to pay attention.

    @strengthrehab I know we've been discussing the 615K+, and I noticed Tire Rack doesn't offer heat cycles for these tires. Doing a little research on as the why currently.

    No need to heat cycle 200tw tires probably as to why.

    200TW tires of choice ar the 615+ and RE-71R. Both are reasonable street tire with near the grip of NT01s. They are the tire of choice for autoXers. I have the RE-71Rs, but wouldn't hesitate to choose either based upon size and price.
