Toyo T1R - Anything good/bad about these?

I've gotten some advice to go with Toyo T1R from a few tire dealers. Apparently they've got great performance and decent wear. I'm wondering how they compare to the Dunlop SP 9000 and Michelin PS2 setups... I've heard the PS2 wears down very quickly but are GREAT tires. And the Dunlop SP 9000 has better wear but not quite as high performace. But these dealers are telling me the Toyo has really impressed them in comparison and runs about $350 less a set.

Advice on these comparisons? Or have you heard anything good/bad about the Toyo T1R setup specifically?

Thanks. ~Jeremy

I'm running Toyo T1Rs on my car now, and love them.........I had 2 sets of P-Zero Neros before, but was only getting 10k-15k out of each set. I highly recommend the Toyos. I've got about 5k on my new set.
