Also ordered a set of 245/40R15 Nankang AR-1's. They won't arrive before I leave town for a bike race so it'll be 1st week June before I can test. Plan is to run sticker RC-1, RR, AR-1 in same size on Vegas at SOW under as controlled conditions as we can afford. RC-1 being the control as we know how to get the maximum out of them. 3 drivers, A/B/C/A, A/B/C/A. Mid week we get the track to ourselves so we can run pretty much continuously. Will be doing some testing on Xida protos for the 86 at the same time. Work, work, work, work.

I had a set of Nankang 245's mounted 15x10's over the weekend. Car is inactive at the moment, so now performance metrics, but they certainly look the part. The limited information available does seem to be promising.

Were you able to get any testing done on these?
