Thought I'd throw up a post as looking at some new rear tyres for the 180. Know there is a recent thread, but didn't really get to the bottom of reviews and a comparison of the selections I'm looking at. Mainly use the car for driver skill and circuit and coffee style events.

Looking at the cheaper, second tier range of semi slicks (bang for your buck - not Z221, A050 etc.), and unfortunately I'm on a 19 inch rim for now, but plenty of room and looking at the 275-295 width.

Selections I'm looking at as follows.

- Toyo R888 (availability difficult in 19)
- Nitto NTO1 (availability difficult in 19)
- Nitto NT05
- Hankook Z222 RS3
- Federal 595RSRR

Comparisons and opinions welcomed.

Z221 Hankook is a good semi.
The ones you've listed in bold are NOT semis, regardless of what every tyre shop says.

I would go RS3 for a car that's mainly for street use.
