except for those running the hoosiers and the Kumho V700 slicks....and maybe the Azenis they have on some MINI's, but for $96 a piece, I feel that is a kicking deal for a 215-40-17 WR rated ultra high performance summer tire.

I am sure having the coil overs will help as well, gonna put those in tomorrow.

The Yokohama ES100's are a great tire, many, many happy people with them, great tread live with tracking....you should consider those, and they are only $119 each from Tire rack for the 235/45/17.

Hehehe...sexy...I want something NICE for my new rims...and since I've got winters already. The only thing I need to figure out is what do with my almost brand new set of Falkens?
Title: Ohhhhh YEAH!!!!
Post by: 03Indigo on August 17, 2004, 10:18:12 AM
wear them down, or sell them here, someone might be able to use them....what size are the Falkens?
Title: Ohhhhh YEAH!!!!

I say use them and abuse them.  get your money out of them...once you know you are getting the new ones, drive it like you stole it, and make your mark on the world...once they are toast, then put on the 17" ers....

would they fit on the Mazda?
Title: Ohhhhh YEAH!!!!
Post by: jayryan on August 17, 2004, 10:42:15 AM
Nope...and by the time I get the new tires on the new wheels...we won't even have the Mazda. HAHA! I should rent out the wheels/tires for track days...hehe
Title: Ohhhhh YEAH!!!!
Post by: 03Indigo on August 17, 2004, 10:46:41 AM
maybe they will fit your new ride...good for commuting, ya never know
Title: Ohhhhh YEAH!!!!
Post by: kraut-sled on August 17, 2004, 11:49:19 AM
I will give you $5.00 for rental on Friday.
Title: Ohhhhh YEAH!!!!
Post by: jayryan on August 17, 2004, 01:22:07 PM
Uh, yeah, I kinda need to wear them :stupid:  :lol:

Excuses, excuses...
Title: Ohhhhh YEAH!!!!
Post by: jayryan on August 17, 2004, 01:31:00 PM
$5.00 is a little cheap...and since I paid more for the tires than I'm going to for your rims you can go ahead and let me have your rims/tires and I'll let you tear the shiznit out of my 15s...but I will need the rims back. :mrgreen:
Title: Ohhhhh YEAH!!!!
Post by: kraut-sled on August 17, 2004, 01:39:01 PM
So are you telling me you want to pay more for the rims? :oha:  :whaasup:

Sorry Jon :oops:

Kumho Estca Supra 712, size 235 45 17.  I think they are great bang for the buck.  As for the track, I will soon findout, but all the other places I have had them they are great.

As for the drop on the car... I am not sure but it is just right for me to squeeze in and out of the driveway at my house :)
