I ran the Avons for a while on my Intermeccanica. This is before I want to the Subaru turbo engine and wider tires. They are absolutely the best thing since sliced bread. There is a compound for the street you need to specify when you order. They are ultra soft like stated above but if you're only driving 50 to 75mi or so a week they're still going to get 3-4 years out of them. And, they look so freaking cool.
