At the B-fest track day, I discovered a piece of metal in my rear tire after setting the ELC arm back to normal. Suprisingly it'* not leaking and have rode on it all week and aren't loosing any pressure. But I had to bite the bullet and get some new rubber, why not get the best I thought, so ended up getting these
Michelin Pilot Sport A/* (Ultra High Performance All-Season) in 235/55/ZR17
More info on them http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes
Read lots of reviews on several tires and choose these, the stickiest tire that still will be decent in Chicagos winters. 2nd choice was Pirelli PZero Nero M&*,These 2 tires are the only ULTRA high perf tire for all season btw. But in the reviews the Pirelli'* they are known to have what'* called "tramlining" which is a uncontrolled feeling on groved surfaces, and didn't want that on the bridges I go on often, hate it when you feel like hydroplaning accross a metal bridge or a grooved surface. so The Pilot Sports are going on soon. Had to order them ofcourse and should be on Monday/Tuesday.
I looked into going with a fatter tire on the same rim and decided against it do to the tire choice for 255/50/17 is slim and the BF T/A'* have some quatliy problems, also any local place would not gurantee them since they aren't designed for 7.5in rims.
I bought at Discount Tire and bargened with the guy, got at $185 a tire and that INCLUDES the mounting and ROAD FORCE balance and Road Hazard, along with free rotates. I've boughten from here before and if you ever have a problem they just give you new tires. My girlfriend bought tires from here last time and had a suspension problem shortly after and tires wore uneven, they still replaced them at no cost due to her POS Honda, they replace them TWICE too actually.
Hope I can make it couple more days with a piece of someones drivetrain in my left rear.
It'* just so unfortunite that I have to part with the crappy stock RSA'* so soon at 33K.
Now just waiting for a cool night and going for that 2.0 60 foot and hopefully that 13 second slip will be mine, also going to try a 3.2 at the track, and allow lots of cooling time.
