Recommended: Yes, but would like to try other options.
Final Thoughts: Very good tire for short sprints. Surprisingly, they withstood a rather long sprint race (35-40 min.) in brutally hot weather- high 90s and humid, full sun.

Final Thoughts: Stiffer sidewall than the RS-3. Better braking and cornering. Not as much grip as a Toyo RR. Still using them for Wet trackdays. Good to drive to/from the track.

Final Thoughts: The BFG Rival performed great for a street tire on track. The performance was best for the first few laps of a 30 minute session. After a few hot laps, the tire overheats somewhat and the lap times drop slightly. With that said, the tire was still very consistent for a street tire, and I was able to keep pace with and even pass other instructors on better R-compound or Race slicks. Driven well, the tire can stand up to some abuse and was very predictable on track.
