Has anyone ran the Full Bore M3 tires yet?

im getting ready to try a set. my shinko's are gone and i can get a set installed for $285. im going to try the the m3 ultra soft rear with just a soft front or maybe even a m1 front if the tread looks close to the same.
if you have tries them how were they?

Rumor has it that the Full Bore and Shinko have the same compound/made by the same folk.. Honda/Acura blah blah.. So if you like the shinko, you'd prolly like the Full Bore.. idk..

i found out all the info. they are made by the same people who make shinko. same compound and same shape and also same weight. they just have a different tread design. the are almost like a slick in the center grove of the tire. the most important part of the tire for me. im going to give it a shot and see if they work better for me.
