I picked up a 2019 Scat Pack so I am back to the RS-A2 until I wear them out. They are FAR better on wet roads than the F1 that came on my 2015. The F1s would hydroplane even at 50-55 MPH in the rain. I do find the RS-A2 to spin more easily on dry pavement than even the F1 tires. The HP/TQ are the same as my 2015, but maybe the 2019 is underrated.
It would be nice to get 27K from my RS-A2 tires like a previous poster but based on past tire history I am not expecting that! I never get more than 20K out of a set of tires, even when I had my G8GT. I was approaching that on my P4S when I traded my 2015.
I think I mentioned it in another thread, but, I wore down all 4 tires in the original 245/45 RS-A2 set in about 14K miles even with religious 4K-mile rotation (original front brake pads were shot as well...).GTO,
Somewhere around 20k miles I missed a rotation and just said fluck it and stopped rotating the RS-A2s.
I'm at 33k and the rears are at the wear bars. Up until about 30k I didn't abuse the tires with donuts or burnouts, etc so you should make it to 30k if you are reasonable and do the 5k rotations.
Then, I went to Michelin PSS, killed these in about 12K (fun) miles or a little over a year; replaced them in June with a PS4 set (245 section) and I have 4K miles on those.
BTW, dry traction of the PS4 feels a step above the PSS; it hasn't really rained since June, so I can't comment on wet traction yet but I know it's going to be epic.
I'm going to need my third set of front pads pretty soon as well.
My car is 4 year old and I reached 30K miles on the ODO last week. So...yeah...I got one of those proverbial lead foot ... .
Me not having a 392 under the hood is probably for the best
