I'm thinking of running these tires this season but I'm guessing these are "premium" r-comps... am I right?

I'll let a CCC member confirm 100%, but I believe they are regular R comps (same as a Hankook TD). The premium R comps are tires like the Hooser A7 or other tires that only have circumferential grooving, no actual tread blocks.

I just wasn't sure because I do see that they have circumferential grooves.

The Trofeos have a "moulded tread pattern" so are R Compound tires. The Premium R tires are slick, except for "only have circumferential moulded grooves".

Circumferential grooves are fine, it's the lack of anything but them that puts them in the "premium" category. All the good street tires have a couple big circumferential grooves too.
