So tyre shop suggested instead of going 235/45R17's in Federal RSRR, to try Hankook RS4 (only $20 extra/tyre).

These will be going on my evo 8 and looking to do PI and Winton as well as a few HillClimbs at Haunted Hills.
I've got a spare set of tyres so only street driving will be a few hundred ks to the track an back depending on how lazy I am about changing wheels.
Open to suggestions and feedback.
