Overall this is a good tire for the price. Traction is sufficient and mostly predictable, though it gets a bit numb at high lean angles and near the limit of traction. Durability is less than expected, as this tire was pretty well used up on the edges after one weekend at the track. Overall it's a good buy for the price and I will likely continue to use them as a practice tire since they're so much cheaper than the other options.

Great performance for a set of entry level slicks.
"We have had riders use the 008 tires on more than one track day with no significant or noticeable loss of traction. As with any track type tire, they do have a heat cycle life span which will vary with rider aggressiveness, track conditions, weather etc. Thank you for giving us the chance to answer your question." -Shinko Tires
