Agreed. I believe this likely reflects their experience with rubbers more than the quality of the Enneti's.
Anyhow I really like them. They seem to offer superior lateral grip to the FAST tires on a shore for shore basis. Also in my opinion they seem to let go far more gradually. The other great thing is that the foam dust is far far less your car stays much cleaner
Only negative point is the shore ratings jump in 5s not 2 and 3s.
OK, what I was trying to ascertain is wheather the use of different origin of foam is an issue in terms of consistancy of grip/wear.
Using GRP tyres as the benchmark, we find the Active tyres more stable, better wearing and more consistant and predictable in terms of handling. I'm sure the stiffer rim contributes to this, though the down side is that they can break in a decent hit and you need to take steps to minimise chunking. The shore ratings, set to set, appear to be within a decent tolerance and they're available in the "in between" shore's, but they're not cheap.
It seems to me that the Zac's are very similar to the Active's (both Japanese rubber) but with a more flexible rim.
I guess I'm wondering if you might have compared the Enneti's to Zac's?
