My BlancPain Sprint partner who had his mild heart attack and ruined our 2018 season is now fully recovered and out testing.
He sent me an email about some new tyres he is testing so I thought I might put this here as I rate his opinion on tyre matters.

He has been testing a new trye called Zestino Gredge 07RS vs Toyo R888R.
It seems Demon Tweeks now sell them: https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/zestino ... s-2012154/ and they are cheaper than the Toyos.

The good thing is that they come in soft compound (140) which is what he tested in 235/40/17 against the Toyos which were 235 45 17.
He did this test because we have both felt that the Toyos and the Nankang AR1s feel very wooden when compared to Michelin Cup 2s which are brilliant for feedback.
Well it was a good result: the Zestinos were a whole second quicker (1:03:347) than the Toyos (1:04:387) and he noted that the feedback, while not up to Cup2 standards was way, way better than the Toyo.
I am sorely tempted to replace my R888R (225/45/15) which are on the MX5 with these 07RS (205/50/15) but Demon Tweeks are saying it will be 63 days before delivery!! I will see if I can get them quicker from someone else.

Found them :!: 1 to 5 days delivery

About 140 Euros for RX-8 sizes, so cheaper than the AR-1. Let us know once you've tried them Ranjan.
