FWIW, I hated the original Rival, driving dynamics wise it's a completely different tire.

You're 100% right on longevity though. Would likely need two sets a season
The Rival and Rival-S feel like completely different tires to me. I would love to talk to an engineer at Michelin to understand what they really changed.

I think it's plausible that a single set of Rival-S could do a competitive OTA season. I don't know if the RE-71R would make it, and the R888 would need at least 2 sets due to heat cycles, not tread wear.
