Their are a soft tire in 2 ways that I have noticed. 1. The obvious part first... the rubber is soft due to the low treadware rating of 160. Hey, when did a set of rear tires last past 16,000 miles on a ZR-1 anyway ?
At normal pressure, 32 lbs for me, they seem a bit softer at turn in as compared to BFG Comp TA's ( yes, I know how old they must be )
I ran a fresh set at 37 psi ( starting line pressure ) in the 150 class for the Silver State ORR...
After the fronts warmed up ( about 5 or 6 miles in ) they drove just fine.
I like em because their cheap... tear em up and throw em away... then get some more...
