Default OK, new leader for most dense Miata owner yet

I know that we have pointed out a few recently, but this takes the cake.

http://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=294619

Bought 4 Hankook Ventus RS-2 (Z212) Used reactions?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have never driven on a tire like this. I bought these to get me by for the rest of the summer. A Club member was selling 4 of them for 100 bucks. They had 10,000 Miles on them. They are very sticky. I had Americas tire co put them on. They seemed to over inflate them or not put the correct PSI in a couple of the tires - as they were not at same PSI. They were at 35 but I think I need to take them down to 30! 195-60-R14 on stock rims on my 96.

They are a terribly fun tire to drive around on but they are so loud. I think I need to find a way to adjust the PSI or something because they grab every edge or crack on the road and push my steering around.
I am interested in what anyone else has as far as suggestions or reactions to this kind of tire.






OK, it seems that he MAY know how to check the air pressure, but not adjust it.

Um ya. I read that to be he needs to find the right pressure to stop them from doing what he describes. Not that he doesn't know how to adjust the pressure.

Oddly worded but not the most dense for sure. With all the idiocy out there between m.net and cr.net, this is the best you could find?

If you don't understand how to add or subtract air from a tire, you should not drive.

Yeh, I find holding onto the steering wheel helps lots.

Maybe he meant the roadwheel? I'd like to see him try that, whilst the car is moving.....
