Goodyear F1 Asymmetric 2 instead of just plain Asymmetrric.
Thanks all for the suggestions. We will take each suggestion in consideration and ask manufacturers about your requests to see if they are current tires that will be around for awhile.
Also, at this time we are planning to use a Scion FRS (possibly a sister car, the Subaru BRZ) as our test car. It is a rear wheel drive car with high levels of handling agility.

Below are my suggestions, several of which duplicate the suggestions of others in this thread. :D-----------------UHP ALL-SEASON SUGGESTIONS:
You'll do the readers a great service by also including the brand-new Toyo Proxes 4 Plus UHP all-season tire. It looks very promising!
Please include the Cooper RS3-A.
Moreover, respectfully you should be reviewing the Bridgestone Potenza 970AS, not the dated Potenza 960AS. Similarly, please test the Falken Azenis PT-722 rather than the outdated ZE-912.
Please also test the new Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval All-Season UHP tire. If nothing else, it will give us a good indication of how important siping is to winter traction (this new, supposed "all-season" offering from Firestone has central tread blocks with no sipes).
I'm very curios to see which tire comes out the winner amongst the Falken Azenis PT-722, Kumho Ecsta 4X, the Nitto Motivo and the Toyo Proxes 4 Plus.
UHP SUMMER SUGGESTIONS:
Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 (higher performance tire than the V12 evo K110)
The BFG g-Force Sport should, of course, be the newer COMP-2 version.
Please test the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2, in addition to the original F1 Asymmetric. There are reports the original Asymmetric was the better tire (except for braking).
The top-rated Michelin Super Sports have replaced the prior-gen Pilot Sport PS2.
Gene, THANK YOU!
