I replaced the P-Zeros with the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercars... Way better tire, for traction, performance... The are higher speed rated, won't last as long due to how soft they are but that was not a factor in my buying decision...

Though magazine article did say they are grippier

Wear rating differs from one manufacturer to another... And I can say beyond a doubt they are way stickier... On orders of magnitude in my opinion... Life of tread, I honestly have no idea if they will last any differently... I based that on my driving style and current power rating... I replace them way before the average bear would... But I'm pushing the hell out of em...

Be cool if tested tires back to back using vbox to see Skidpad Gs differences

The Goodyear Supercar F1's grip way better than the Pirelli's, but personally Michelin PSS are the best...

Have them since 3 months. Better handling, better grip, softer ride, not affected by truck grooves on highways. 2 friends tok the car to the drag and both found that traction is much better all the way compared to P-Zero's. And affordable.
