    Max was added to filter out the top UHP ones, It was ok for a while, but of course through time gets mixed up.....lol

    I think the top brand top tyres were there, maximum performance on dry and wet. Then probably other brands want to be in also.....lol

    For the street, I always value wet performance (braking & handling) over dry, as I feel when it’s dry, things are more predictable than wet. Again for street driving not track racing.

    The FK510 seems to consistently score quite high for wet performance. If the price is 20% less than PS4, they truly are a worthwhile alternative.

    Yeah agree, wet performance is very important for street tires especially for us who live in places that can often rain heavily, that's why I also still shy away from extreme category tires. This test proves that point as the extreme track ready tires are all significantly lagging behind in the wet while their dry advantage has become smaller compared to the best UHP/max category tires like PS4S and CSC6.
    The S1E2 also performs very well in that test, neck and neck with FK510 with a bit better dry and slightly lesser in the wet.

    Yup, agree. My tyres used usually are good in wet too. For dry I find even less performance tyres can already perform quite well. In the wet that is where the better performance tyres breaks away from the lesser performing ones....

    Your size is very common so should be available or at least just need to wait a bit for supply to stabilize.
