1. Trolling with nearly 300 posts? O RLY?

2. Even if English is indeed your fifth language, at least put a little bit of effort into it.

I nominate this for the biggest discrepancy between the quality of the car and the quality of the post.

Come on guys, it's not like you don't understand what I'm saying here. Why are you being ********?
I have been a member here for long time, more than many of you[?]. Why are you acting like ******** now?
I shouldnt have to read your post 3 times in order to figure out what youre trying to say.

Here, Ill try to translate you post, although I don really understand a lot of it, especially the last sentence(s).

What kind of lots are you going to autocross on (large/small)?
How serious do you want to take your autocrossing?
Do you want to do anything to your car to fit the tires (ie, cut/pull/roll fenders)?
Do you want to drive on the same tires to the events?
Asked before-what wheels do you have?

If you are new to autox then r-compound tires will only delay your ability to improve as a driver. The RE-11s are a fairly good street class tire and you would be better off sticking with them for a season while you work on improving your skills as a driver. But, if you just gotta have r-compounds then 225-50-15 Kumho V710s or 225-45-15 Hoosier A6s will fit without too much of a problem. The Kumhos are longer lasting than the Hoosiers but the Hoosiers are a slightly quicker ride. If your ride is slammed then all bets are off on those two sizes. Another factor to consider is your alignment. What are the numbers? If you don't know then I recommend you do a bit more reading and talking to others who autox. It is not just about tires and horsepower.

Seems like you would want a good sticky street tire for autox, not a cold slick tire. Dunno, never done it.
