    +1. Dave is going to hate this but my gut feel (and some horribly unreliable gps data with some variable fudging) says that the starspecs might be better suited for the mustang in terms of wear, and laptimes (and funny enough, the RS3's probably would have been better tires for the prelude). I just don't know how they'd do on a heavier car. They were awesome tires on my prelude. 25000 street km, and 11 track days, only swapped front to rears once, and still had a little life. For grassroots, that should be the spec tire lol.

      Wow! I really appreciate all the advice. It gives me much to consider. Better start saving my coins. I hope to have the new tires & rims for next season. (If my current tires last the rest of this season....)
