40 and 45psi are pretty high, no? My hot temps with the 71R are nowhere near that. Might be partially why I have the shoulder wear though and likely need more camber all around.

looking back I believe so, that was first foray into 200 tw tires. Now I typically run 35 psi up front and 35-40 in the rear...

Xian, I get how inncreased pressure/more camber could help even wear but I don't understand why a wider rim would. I would thing a smaller rim would "round out" the tire similar to over inflating I have a very similar was pattern with my re-11s. Outside is smooth but inside block has good tread. (205 re11 on 6.5 inch wheels) I don't have enough camber though.

A wider wheel keeps the tire from rolling over onto the outside shoulder as much. Pinching a tire lets it roll/shift on the wheel more and concentrates the load/wear onto the outer shoulders of the tire.

Running a really high pressure reduces rollover and helps even out wear at the expense (usually) of lower grip.

Oh, and additional rumor mill stuff:

The new Falken 615K may share the same or a similar compound to what was used on the Z2 SS. Apparently Dunlop and Falken have some corporate level ownership ties that may have let them leverage the Z2 technology. Take this one with a grain of salt.

A known fast guy/tire tester tried out the new Federal RSRR and seems to think it's "in the neighborhood" of the RE71R and Rival-S. This is a single data point but a pretty good one. Not sure what their sizing, availability, and pricing looks like.

From the sizes it looks like the federal come in a honda friendly 205/50/15 so that's a good thing for most.

When I had the Z2 SS, i noticed they were made in Japan, I take it those were probably related to summitomo dunlops rather than goodyear so it would make sense it was related to the rt615k. It does seem like the falkens use the same name, but unless you keep up on tire news, you would never know it was a different compound revision or not...

FWIW, looks like I missed the correct nomenclature... it's the 615K+

The Falken 615K+ and Federal bits are intriguing. Good tire options are always a good thing. I suspect I should update the OP with new tire/size options over break.

Nope, I haven't seen or heard anything on it... I'd expect early 2017 so they can meet the SCCA tire eligibility restrictions.

Edit:
The revised BFG should be out around the same time *and* their 245 15 has shown up on their sizing list...

I'm pretty excited about the 245/40/15 from BFG, I think you could fit it under stock fenders with 3-3.5* of camber. I've seen a 255/40/17 under a stock JDM front with that kind of camber, on a 17x9.

I'm also excited about the 615K+, can't wait to see more. I really like the 615K that are currently on my R over the Kuhmo's it had on it prior. I'd like to see more options in the 225/45/16 size, I've got a set of 16x7.5 +42 TE37's that need a set of tires for this summer.

And the RS4 is now listed on TireRack... I'd expect it to be out soonish.

Any idea how these might compare to the 71R? They have a stock wheel tire size but dont know if that would work on my 15x7 track wheels? 71R are also cheaper in a 205/50.

Zero data on how the RS4 will perform. I did see a post from a guy who works at TR that they're expecting their first shipment of them in March. Should be ~20 sizes available at initial release. My suggestion would be to buy them now and get your tires reserved if these are what you want. I wouldn't be super surprised to see the popular sizes sold out before the first shipment arrives...

True, I dont need the tires yet but at some point I may want to stop staring at my wall art and drive them.

Lol!

Looks like TR took them back down from the website... I've gotta think that they were getting plenty of timing related questions so it was easier to pull them than it was to keep answering inquiries.

Yup, they are already pulled. It helps (temporarily) save me $500 anyway.
