An old friend the Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec is being replaced by a newer tire which promises to have higher levels of dry grip Dunlop Direzza II. These are estimated to arrive in Feb 2013. We are currently taking pre orders for those looking to have the performance edge this spring. Below there is a picture to illustrate the tread pattern differences. We will being testing the new tire spring of 2013.

I really loved the ZI because of what you get for the price. I hope the same remains true with the ZII and the prices remain relatively similar.

How will these new tires hold heat. The last star specs could get greasy on track
