Do the new Falken RT660s really have more grip then NT01s or R888Rs? I haven't read anything earth-shattering about them, but I've also not talked to anyone running them either.

For the first 5 or so heat cycles..... yes. then like most others they drop off. IMO the best tire is still re71 cause it handles rain better than all the others in it's class and still grips better than most all the 100tw tires at auto-x events. We've ran the re71 on track and even when overheated they still provide more grip than the other 200tw tires, they just will only last about 8 or so hours in an enduro. The A052 has it's place but not on the track, it grips concrete like crazy though

Yep. On the street ALL the 200 treadwear tires will feel amazing for a couple months, then fall off. They will hang with or beat the 100 treadwear tires for the first couple heat cycles.

The 100 treadwear tires actually get a little better as they wear if not abused, and are good until you cord them.
