The dunlops are a much better tire for dry grip. I'm not sure about longevity, though.
Personally, I would opt for a non runflat such as the michelin mpss. They have decent grip, lingevity and a much better ride. Get a AAA membership and a can of Slime in case of a flat.

I like the Dunlops as well, also they are a few lbs lighter  :)

Dunlops are the only tyres I've used. I quite like them. I run out of talent before they run out of grip. :-)

I have been using them in 18” up front with my rear MTSS drag radials and are similar to the re070

Now I have RE 070, and I find it harder and harder each time when I have to change it, S007 seems a little bit easier to find :hmm:

Wow.  You are fast from what I've seen.  They are very good, but wow expensive.  i left them behind after my first set.

Do the stock RF dunlops run better laptimes than the Michelin 4S, same size?

Probably car and driver specific on that.  I do not know any GT-R drivers personally on the 4S's.

 

On my F90 M5, the 4S's are FRICKIN AWESOME, but there are better tires for laptimes, but for an all around tire hard to beat.

I haven't run the 4s yet (will soon on oem wheels) but I've run some decent lap times on the NR1 dunlops. If I end up going around Buttonwillow on the 4s I'll report back!
