got 2 new tires today....
« on: 01:07:34 AM / 08-Mar-11 »


Ordered these last week....205 50 15 dunlop star specs. I am going to go have these mounted tomorrow. The place I am going to go have these mounted at has some 195 50 15 bridgestones that are used that I am prolly going to buy for like 20 bucks each. The sad thing is....one tire shipped costs me as much as one hoshino cost me when i bought my hoshinos...

So how much did they cost, and where did you order them from? I actually need that same size.

oh, and they are going on the back.

No shit :P

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

Tire Rack. I needed new tires for the back really badly...so thats one reason why I only got two. The sunnys on the front still have life in them, but the ones in the back ended up getting bad camber wear.



I have been running some s13 wheels in the back for the like last 2 weeks with 195 65 15 studded snow tires on them....the car has rake and is sunken in like a battle ship. I cant wait to get these on the car tomorrow. :D. I also bought all the stuff I need to do a oil change and tune up on the ka...but it might be raining tomorrow...:/

oh, and for the 2 shipped was right around 250. I am hoping I can replace the front tires before I have to replace the backs again...haha.

I should also mention arro...that the star specs are one of the top rated tires right now on grass roots motor sports a long with the bridgestone re11s...which cost more.
