I've only driven a car equipped with S rated BFG T/As once. It was terrifying.
I sourced a set of new Z rated Yoko AVS intermediates for my car last year. These are recent production and were stored properly (sealed up) before use.
Their performance is nothing short of sensational at triple digit speeds.
When it comes time to replace, I will try the Michelin TB-5R next. I would like to get a tire with more recent development and technology on the car.
The Yokos are nice tires BUT there are tires that even though they have DOT numbers on them and are street legal, have a very limited window of opportunity for street use.
For one thing, tire compound on some of these tires is designed for use within a narrow temperature range.
Many of them will become lethal as the temperature drops and by the time you reach under about 40 F can no longer be driven safely.
It's your money. Spend it how you choose to.
