Default Has anyone tried GMAX RS

General has a new-ish tire out, GMAX RS, ive talked to people that have them on corvettes and they say that they're the tire they're very, very good tire for the price.
Cheaper than sumi's @ discount tire.
I'm running ps fronts and ps2 rears, I'm getting tired of spending almost 1000 a rear set.
I don't know anyone that has them on any turbo or porsche for that matter so I was hoping someone that has them can chime in.
No track days or dig/drag but i do like the roads in my back yard.

Have them on my '02, 996TT. Just over 5,000km, [ 3000 miles].

No complaints; they are wearing well and hold the road both in wet and dry.

Relative to the Pirelli .PZero's that lasted just 15,000km on the rear, these
are doing well, at much less cost. But as with the poster, on track/autocross.

GHope this helps.

I'm assuming those General tires will fall into about the same performance category as the Sumitomos. Great for commuting and cruising, probably not the tire for aggressive canyon and/or open tracking. It's nice to see another option for 295/30!

Yes I have a set on for couple months with 200 miles so far. They’re fine for the usual highways and skyline runs. Tracks straight, don’t wander, responsive, not too stiff like the Bridgestones. Runs fine in wet. Can’t beat the price, treadwear and warranty. No brainer for regular use. Why waste PS2s on daily or weekend drives? Wish these were available years ago.
