How's their road noise and treadwear? I'm considering these toyo tires also since I'm planning to take my car on the track.

Road noise is not an issue for me, as there are so many other noises I am producing.

Tyre wear is high. the T1R is supposed to wear more favourably whilst still giving good grip.

I suggest rolling the arches and going down to a 195/45/16 on 16x8 et10

I'm currently running 195/45/15. 8j et10 is ideal for flush fit.

BUT is your car an S3 or S1/2. Makes a big difference
