    on the other hand I have the 712's and I think they are a fine tire. but there are much better ones out there.

    712's you get a lot of mileage out of and are cheap. they are not that sticky though.

    street tires are exactly that used on the street for everyday driving, and they work 100% fine for me, yes they suck for autox and the like.

    competition tires are those to be used in autox and similar racing styles.
