Hit a dip in the road doing 60, thankfully I had slowed down from 80, full extension of the suspension and a little bounce, thankfully it wasn’t a potholeIt really was. Saw it at the last second and hit it doing 80+. Fucked up the front wheel, knocked the alignment out and put a bubble in the sidewall of the rear.
The Nitto's were purpose purchased as a drag radial for the rear, initial intention was to keep the OEM PP1 wheel on the front with the Nitto on the rear, went back and forth several times on what wheels to purchase, and what stagger to do, and when the SP2 wheels came back in stock I had to get new fronts to fit the 10" wheel...I looked at the Nitto G series but since the car isn't going to be track car due to the DRs, it left me open to other options. Couple of deciding factors on Goodyear's were they ranked very well for track use (which I won't be doing, but its nice to know they are good if you need them) and the bottom line was price, I have a buddy who works for Goodyear corporate, and with the discount coupon he gave me, these were about $250 less out the door than the Nitto G's and were rated higher. If Goodyear would have made a DR tire, I would gone with them at all 4 corners.Why not the same brand of tyre on each corner?
Looks great and center caps are a nice little something extra.Finally got my tires/wheels installed...canceled the last 2 appointments due to cold and snow; I couldn't put it off any more even though it was wet and light snow this AM. Now it needs a good detail. Just a bit of poke out of both the front and back, no rubbing with full lock on steering. SVE SP2's 10/11X19's Fronts are Goodyear F1 Supercar 3's in 285/25/19 and rears are Nitto 555RII in 305/25/19.
