Why do you want the pilots? I had some T1-S for my last set and I loved 'em. Only problem is that they wouldn't quit their smoking habit. It's couldn't be me, haha. Also, I have good things about the RA-1. Then again if you want to chop off your left nut to pay for them. I have heard the tread warranty/life is only about 5K. What's that all about getting new tires every time I change my oil. Hey Drew I have done good on my 4's. Only one hell raising burnout since I got them. It was only because it was my birthday and Auburn beat LSU in the same day.
