Option 2.

Contrary to popular opinion (flame suit on), the stock RFT's are really good performance tires, as good as PS2's EXCEPT in ride comfort (stiff sidewall), drag racing (stiff sidewall does not allow tire to grow), and in the wet.

Dry lap and braking distances times are nearly identical to PS2's, with the tests I've seen showed a slight edge to the RE050 RFT in these catgories.
