We’ll see how they do but a lot of fair reviews on what to expect...

How did these perform? Would you recommend them on the street? I have the MT's for the strip. Need a better option for the street that can corner too.

Great! I actually have 2 sets of Toyos now. Word of caution in standing water/heavy rain, they can be like skates. Drove to CFest, raced NCM, and back with them. Still driving with them.

29 PSI on all 4, gets to 32 PSI hot, on race day start @ 27 PSI cold and keep them hot to around 32, 33 PSI — road course work.

Really grips at my power level once heated up...

These are not a great 'cold' weather tire -- 19° is the lowest but I'd not do that on these.

Also, the tires need to be ~70° before installing them.

I see you're in CT so I'm pretty sure its get really cold there ;o)

Yes it does get cold, but I'm looking for summer. Some spring and fall but not under 50˚. Want more grip than the MPSS, but with more stability than the MT's.
