Re: Can anyone comment on the Nitto NT05 or any other 200 TW tire?

I'm in the same boat as you Ryan. I've got a worn out set of extreme contact sports I'm going to try for the first event. If they do ok I'll likely buy a new set for autocross and daily driving in the summer. I know they won't be as fast as rivals or re71r but I only do a handful of locals every yea...

Re: STM XSA XSB WTF!?!

I'm not running nationally except maybe one of the Bristol events. I might run STH but if I go with wider wheels than the class allows it'll be STM or XSA. I just want to go to a class with at least a few people in it. Having said that, is anyone who normally competes in STM switching over?

STM XSA XSB WTF!?!

Is STM still alive locally? Or will XSA XSB take over? I'm not sure which direction I'm going with my car yet. But, it would be nice to know what letters to get if I order new magnets.

Re: Sept. 22nd last event

Looking for a co drive. I'd prefer a fwd or awd car since my next car will be one or the other. Beggars can't be choosers though, right. I can pay your registration fees and offer some beer of your preference.

Will the Street Car Takeover that's going on at the dragway interfere with this?

Re: New Wheel Reconmendations

I got my F14 from a corvette forum vendor (vibe motorsport). They were great to deal with. I was part of the big black friday order and I think forgestar took too many orders. My wheels got delayed once due to a QC issue with one of the 19s. I was happy they caught the issue and didn't ship. It did ...

Re: Tire issues

Yep! They seem to have some serious quality issues. The reason mine took so long (other than a lot of black Friday sales) was because the front 2 didn't pass quality control and they had to remake them. The tire guy said the 19 he had a hard time seating a tire on was slightly out of round though. I...

Re: Tire issues

Ted, a different guy got them on in 20 minutes this morning. He did use a little starter fluid I believe.

Dave, no stretching 305 on 19x11.

Steve, yes forgestar wheels. Harp just told me about Kristo and Dave's issue. That one wheel is slightly out of round.

Tire issues

So after almost 15 weeks I finally got my wheels yesterday. I got new tires last week. Today while I was at work my dad took them to the local discount tire to have them mounted and balanced. I went to pick them up and apparently they got 3 of the 4 done but are having a problem getting the tire to ...

WTB: Bridgestone re71r

Before I buy new I thought I'd see if anyone had any used for sale. I'm looking for 2 275/35r18 or 265/35r18 and 2 305/30r19.

Re: Tri-Cities Potential Spots

Kmart in Johnson City is closing soon (maybe it already has?) https://www.google.com/maps/@36.3520684 ... !1e3?hl=en
The lot looks big enough but it's been a while since I've been there so don't know the condition it is in.
