    Only thing I've found so far:

    Sounds promising for something in the ball park of Rival S pace with more longevity, but we'll see.

    Edit: Some more, but mostly talking autocross performance:

      Early reviews look pretty positive on the RS4. More important, they are available here in Canada. Has anyone found a Canadian source for the Rival S 1.5? One dealer has told me that are not available in Canada at all. I'm looking for 225-45-15.

        Try Greenleaftire.ca they seem to be carrying them, not sure about that size though.
        Good luck!

            Did anyone run the RS4's at the first OTA event at TMP? If so what were your impressions on performance and tire life?

              I did. They feel very similar to an RS3, but with more grip. They seem to hold up very well. I don't think they're as fast as an RE71R, but I think they'll last much longer.

                Dragging out an old post but ...

                Put RS4's on my Boxster S track car beginning of last season.
                Have 8 DE weekends (Red/ Instructor run group) on them at CTMP, so that is about 8x2x4x20 min ~ 20 hours and 60 heat cycles. Car is well set up with lots of camber so the tires wear evenly. I am about 50-60 % of the way through the tread.

                Overall grip by the seat of the pants dyno is as good or a litter better than the RS3 in the dry. If i dont get the pressures right they do start to get a little greasy towards the end of a 20 min stint but thats on me.
                In the wet i had a little more confidence in the RS3, but i still prefer the Michelin PSS

                Overall a great tire and a good replacement for the RS3. Good wear, good grip, good price point too. Got mine at Braiden Tire.
