Amazing Autocross and track day tire. Never seen someone use it for hooking on the street though.

As long as they hook decent, not worried about a dead stop.
Street comps have been the best I have tried on a actual street tire. And I have tried alot alot. If they Hook in 2nd and 3rd on motor I will be happy

They warm up very quick. I haven't tried them, but want to when I get a track wheel set up. I know a lot of people like them for cornering, but would be interesting to see how they hook in a straight line.

On motor they should definitely hook well.

I can still knock the street comps loose easy on motor so hopefully these will slightly be better.

Wish they came is something bigger than a 285/35/19 but Bfgoodrich usually runs big so they should be closer to a 295

It's a good tire. Just don't air them up to the recommended psi. You will have to play with it a little to get them where you want them,

I too am going with the BFG rivals as my next set of tires. I have read so many good things about the performance of these tires on the track.
I am currently running the Mickey Thompson Street comps both Street and track use. They are completely finished after 7000 miles. Not a very durable road course track tire. I've heard that the BFG's wear like iron on the track.

Yup. They don't show any cupping at all. Just nice clean even wear.

That's what I heard. My Mickey Thompson Street comps are chunking in the front. Too many track days and heat cycles.

I thought the sport comps selling point was longevity? Well, it's to be understood if you're tracking the ever living sh*t out of them. My main concern is a good daily, that handles, and CAN bite a bit at the strip I need be.

I would definitely give the Mickey Thompson Street Comp an above average rating for a street tire. Especially for the price.
One drawback is the limited size for a 19 inch rim. 285 mm is the widest they offer.

If I can make a 285 work there no reason either of you shouldn't be able to

Only reason I'm not a fan of a 285 is the narrow look.

Hmmmm....so 285's are kinda narrow eh? I've been debating width of tires now for a while. I'm going to be running 19x10 35+ out back. Lowered 1.5

They look narrow. Alot more than my 305's are.
But I also like the unexpected look.

Ehhhh, I'd say a G roughly I suppose. With 19's I know that'll add up quick.

A student of mine used a set of these on his A Street class 2012 GT500. They were grippy for cornering, had a decently stiff sidewall (so they do not hook up well). However, they do not hold up well to heavy cars like mustangs, the tread delaminated from the sidewall within three months in two cases I saw locally. If you are not concerned about how many miles you can get out of a set of tires (the most I have seen a Rival go is 16,000 miles), take a look at the Bridgestone RE-71R. I had the chance to drive one last weekend on another national level car, and after a few runs, they had the same grip as an R-Comp from five years ago. The new version of the Rival comes out in a few weeks (the Rival S), I would wait to see how those shake out if possible. The Dunlop Z2 Star Spec is a good tire, but a bit dated, and the Hankook Ventus RS3-V2 is a top choice at nationals so far this year.

The RS-3V2 was the tire of choice in all of the street tire classes at the 2014 Solo Nationals, it is a great tire.
