    The videos on your thread are not working , but looking at the pics the sidewalls looking good on loads . They definitely cant be that bad and should not be sniffed at . Same was with NS2Rs when they came out and some of us were 1st to try them out , there was only 1 sec in them against old type R888s but for less than 50% of a cost .

    Spoke to Adam Elder yesterday, the UK Zestino Dealer as of this week. He currently has the soft compound in 265 35 18, these are unscrubbed with 8mm of tread depth. He says soft is the favoured one for Track M3's, he can order mediums but that takes a couple of weeks or so to arrive from Slovakia, same for hards, which he says have 10mm of tread.

    He says that in Japan Zestino are now 2nd in the Performance Tyre Market.

    Price for the Softs are currently on promotion @ £79 each + VAT + Delivery, so about £380 incl + Delivery.

    I am going to try a set of these after my next track day, as the current AR1's will not be road legal then.

    Their £420 delivered, I got a quote on the 265/35/18 softs.

    Just don’t know if I want to risk 420 when I could put that towards a proper set of known tyres like AR1’s, AD08R etc

    I can still get federal fz-201’s from Poland at £690 delivered and I know their good for the money!

    Quote for Zestino Mediums from Adam:-

    "4 x 265/35/18 medium are £297 including vat currently waiting for stock. EST 14 days to having stock"

    I don't know any other R type tyre that is that price, nearly makes them throw away, think I am going to give it a go and see.

    Ordered a set as I need some road tyres, plus they would be ideal for a track evening when you don't get much time to change wheels, will report back if I don't stick it in the hedge when I use them on the road:muttley:

    Brilliant, seemed to going very well I have to say, the proof is in the pudding.

    Was the traction control off, and what is your suspension & brakes?

    Ill be running the soft on a 1400kg M3 at Silverstone for a few laps:

    They feel very dunlop 03g on the edges, I think they will be in-between a dunlop/Ar1/trofeo and a cup 2. Wont light up the lap times but great for arrive and drive at such a cheap price. Especially is track is damp to dry.
