Assuming equal sizes on a FWD drive car, I found them to be very comparable in terms of grip and longevity of grip during a session.

I never ran them long enough to compare tire life of one to the other. The few sets of NT01s that I've owned have lasted forever. Literally...like a full year of NASA events.

Yeah 225 hoosier is the same size as a 245 maxxis.

Thanks for the info and yes they'd be for FW sized at 225/45/15.
My NT01s are just about cycled out and was exploring other tires. Overall I'm very happy with NT01s, and your right they've lasted a year of events.

If you are looking for a little bit more speed, at the expense of some longevity, I would recommend the Toyo RR. It's available in 225/45/15, it's similar in price, has the same predictable characteristics during a 20 minute session, and for the first few heat cycles (~10?) is noticeably faster than the NT-01.
Even though the NT-01 will get you through an entire year, usually by the end they're pretty hard from enduring that many heat cycles. I suspect that you'll get about 25-30% less longevity out of the RR, but the additional grip you gain is a nice. The RR is a nice compromise between a tire that will last forever like the nt01 and a tire like Hoosier that is the fastest DOT tire available but only lasts 4-5 track days and gets progressively slower with every heat cycle.
