The Hoosier R7 in 275 has a better contact patch and grip but may still rub slightly without a 12mm spacer.
The RE71 in 265 square is a great all around tire, wet or dry, but several seconds slower. My overal favorite is the BFG G-Force R1 in 265/35, it fits without issues ( still using a 5mm spacer in front), has a contact patch equal to some 275s, wears well and gives me great lap times.
Great feedback. What do you feel are the pros/cons between the R7 and R1?
