pirellis tyres in my opinion are crap because they are pulling solberg back from winning the WRC and thats annoying!

I also agree and I use them for road tyres... They dont hold the road as well as I'd like them too and for me, that's not good

Wont be having them again....

I dont think they are too soft, I think they are a little on the hard side as they dont seem to grip for me at all... I'm really looking forward to having some Toyo's on there...

because the more harder they are the more grip you lose but there are super hard racing tyres that boast excellent endurance

Pirelli is way over-rated and over-priced. I'd take Michelin Pilots over any tire.
