New Skins

Since my Cooper Zeons didn't last at all, I got me some new feet under her. Picked up a new set of Yokohama Prada Spec-x's in the 305/50/20 size. Good looking tire and super quiet on the road. Plus they are V rated and grip like crazy. Guess it's time for that rear sway bar I was thinking of. Anyway, pics to come and I'll keep y'all updated on how they perform over time.

Yep, high traction tires don't wear long.

50,000 km is 31,000 miles, they may go that distance but my guess is they won't be fit to drive on. The Dunlops SP5000 tires are suppose to be high performance and had good traction. I had them on for just over two months some of that was jacked up while overhualing the tailshaft and rear axle. Technically they were out of warranty due to wear. The shop knew what hell I had gone through with these tires and replaced them without charge. My problem was when I originally mounted the Dunlop's I used two new rims and raced all on the same weekend. Not thinking it was the tires themselves I blamed the rims and then thought maybe I broke something racing. Basically blaming everything but the tires.
