If you happen to find a tyre that really suits your car even a Hanlook or Kumho might be the ultimate..for your needs ..
I´m always amazed that even seemingly professional teams don´t really know what they stick on their rims and take things a bit grantedas Michelins are best and Pirelli are inconsistent-inconsistent in what?- do we know if this is in the tyre or how it was stored and how long? Constant asking of your tyre supplier will build knowledge and maybe tell you who to ask and when...all of a sudden things will fall in palce and the semingly bad product starts to show strengths you never thought possible.
But then who am I to know.

There was a discussion on the dead weight of the wheels being some 30kgs more. F1 uses magnetism alloy wheels. Why is there no wheels of carbon fiber, is it impossible to make a F1 spec wheels with carbon fiber?

I hope that isn't per wheel.
I don't think that number is accurate. If it's for 4 wheels, that's about 16.5 lb of metal per wheel. How much do the current 13" wheel weigh?
