It was VERY cold the first set of runs, my first runs were around 30 degrees. No traction at all in the front. After it warmed up to around 55 it got a lot better but I have to admit that if you really want to have fun in the car it needs better rubber. The rubber on it is more aggressive then most tires on OEM cars but the front didn't have quite the bite I was needing. This was a very technical course. Granted with warmer weather it would have helped a lot, but better tires are recommended. I'm going to try either 215/40/17's or 225/45/17's if they fit in a Dunlop ZII.
