You have a PM champ.
Another tip dont just go out and buy a new tyre call around tyre joints first see if they have any seconds, i got the factory 20' potenza for a 100 bucks a tyre someone traded for 22's, i needed new rears so i got two spares now for the next time that comes around
what do you guys think of odd tyres on the rear?
just out of curiousity, i'm not planning on doing it lol
Assuming by odd, you mean the same tyre on each side of the rear (not 2 different ones Lol) then there's no real issue with it. I generally change all four (or at least get the same brand) to keep it balanced, but I'll probably just change the rears next time (well the fronts will go the rear and I'll get new fronts -mine are all the same size) because the fronts are barely worn. And I probably won't get the kumhos again so they won't match.
nah i meant a different tyre on each side of the rear snips.
yea i can't rotate mine as they are different sizes
That's quite illegal mate.
the fella at the tyre shop didn't mention that. he said heaps of cars do it. i'd be better off getting the same though
Heaps of people text while they're driving as well... Doesn't mean its ok
odd tyres are a good way to wear out an LSD too.
My bro put odd sized tyres on the rear of his corolla wagon with a welded diff lol. CONSTANTLY wanting to turn and if u hold it straight, the tyres chirp when driving straight HAHA.
Haha... A lot of geminis do that aswell!
fair call snips, spinning the wheels in an SS (or any car for that matter) is also illegal haha.
tell you what, this is the worst time to have a flat tyre. dunno if u have heard of the amount up rain we have had up here?
the SS is loosing traction at every chance it gets with the spare on it
Yeah mate its been on the news. Need to have a light toe at the moment
It's probably a bit late but I highly recommend Falken FK452s. I love them, I got about 30k out of my rears and have a new set ready to go on now
Bloody hell Troy, you got a few km's out of them! My rears were pretty much slick at 25000kms! And I dont hook in too much...
I asked my local tyre place about Falken 452's and he said they're a good tyre but their 275 is narrower that other 275's. I know that sounds stupid because 275 is a measurement but apparently they (only the 275's) don't fit the wheels as well as other brands.
They're full of **** mate! I have the 19in 275s on the Clubby and they were fine!
He was talking about the 275/30R20 and is a fully trustworthy guy. He just said they don't sit as well as other rubber of the same size on the rims. Like on a 9.5" rim the other brands sit square to the rim whereas the Falken is recessed slightly so rim lip is visible sticking out more.
Ended up going with 2 Kumho KU-31's for $498 Fitted and Balanced
That ain't bad
yep... $250 a corner for 20's and in a half decent brand as well... done well.
im going to suck it up and get the falken 452's when the time comes.... hoping they have a sale or something in the next few months .
