I did a burnout, then tore the shitty rubber ropey plug I forgot I still had in teh tire.

I think it must have got removed, god ******* damnit.

What good tires can I get for around this price, or maybe half and again more.

4 New 205 50 15 Nitto Neogen Neo Gen 50R R15 Tires | eBay

S-drives for $400? Dunloop direzza, about the same $300? Full baller 225 nt01's ~$640?

I can probably get new tires for the cost of patching the two I have that need it right, they're about done anyway. I'd do more ropey things then more burnouts because I don't do enough of those.

I have neo's now, I like how nice and quiet they ride for $300 and they last decently long enough. My car floats like poo in the rain though, I don't know if it's the tires or if I need alignment.

zII look like they'd be more floaty, I don't want more floaty. Is my **** just fubar or is standing water yanking your car all over the road too? I'll hug the double yellow and ride the crest in the middle of the lane and all is fine.

I wonder if the DZ102 is worth anything, around the same price as the neo's or the federals. 400 something treadwear says why bother.

I'm having a hard time finding more than one store selling the federals though, seems they are popular overseas. I'm liking how they look though, 140tw so should be stickier than what I've got now. I can has those for about $50 more than nittos, due to shipping. Seems ZIIs might last longer and be abut as grippy, moar dollars though...

That's the only thing I've read thus far, they die fast. If they last a season or so for $350 that ain't bad.

As long as they don't hum like a ************ at any point before they're dead I'll be happy.

I'm thinking I need to order new federals. I drove the neogens through the snow all last year, rain hasn't crashed me yet, how much worse could these be

<p>The neogens are a high performance all season. Way different than the federals. The federals are going to suck dick in adverse conditions.</p>

<p>Yeah. The neogens are a good tire. Good performance, good tread wear, good wet performance.</p><p>The Federals will work in the wet, but probably not as well.</p>

Holy crap, they are all season. I did not know that.

Wet Performance

Deep circumferential grooves work in unison with the slanted three-dimensional tread blocks to evacuate water. This helps maintain contact with the road and provides increased wet traction.
Maybe my car is knackered. Contact to the road does not exist with any standing water, I steer around puddles.



Glad we are making both 11 and 11.5 brackets, I might have to find cheap winter wheels and tires soonish.
