Anyone running 215 Michelin Cup 2 tyres on the front of their 350 with 5 spoke wheels?

A photo of my 215mm Cup2s when I had them fitted (don't worry about the state of my discs, I had new ones put on not long after!)

You'd get mostly track related commentary from me, but they're almost as talented as the ZZRs I was running before in terms of outright dry performance, but with additional capacity for wet running and better longevity. I'd say 6 days on track would result in  'just' legal tread depth on the rears but they'd have had enough heat cycles in them to be considered shot anyway. You definitely feels when the compound's past its best. Sidewalls seem to lead to a bit more comfort but little consolation for me when I drive everywhere on my track setup on the TTX dampers! Another point to note is I've not used a tyre that's quite so bad in terms of marble pick-up on track, which has lead to some interesting steering feel mid-corner, but this varies from circuit to circuit.

Cup2s are great tyres if you like driving. 

They are balloons if you want looks.
