R888s will most likely hook in second at 40mph... I got PSS on my e92 right after i got them and regretted the decision daily... they are not terrible but they are not a stand out tire IMO and I care most about straight line performance.
PSS become useless below 60 degrees... I drove my r888s on nice days in the winter and hooked... I am not lying or making anything up... There is a reason you see most gtrs with them or atleast the gtrs i see in NY... I said it before as did @themyst
, i prefer my dws over the PSS in every aspect but turn in and its not that far behind. "
