The Tyre Factory Mega Sale


Recommended Posts

I have just come back from TTF and thought this deserves a post!

If you need tyres or wheels go to The Tyre Factory, Thomastown or Geelong, tonight (till midnight) or tomorrow (Sat.) till 4pm, as they are having a sale.

I just scored a PAIR of Hankooks Ventus K102 for $260, fitted and balanced (255x40x17) (brand spankin' NEW :) )

Thats right!!!! A pair for $260 :)

PS: I have absolutely no affiliation with TTF, but this sale is worth a mention.

Michael said those tyres are rubbish and were very sloppy at the track and he only got about 2 laps out of them.. or something like that.. I don't know his thoughts on them as street tyres though.

Not for track, i have my re55s for that :).

Just wanted a set of cheap rubber for daily/thrash type duties, as my std rims no longer fit over my 33GTR Brembos.

I have a set of Hankook K104's on my 19's and these are pretty damn good as street tyres, so i figured the K102's (newer design) can't be too bad :)

The sale is advertised, heard it in NOVA for the last 2-3days, no specific prices given, just a sale across the board.

I did do some of my own negotiation ;)

    • Your NEO head is worth quite a bit of coin, and since it has been serviced it is already in tip top condition. You could sell that and you'll have only a small shortfall for a used 2nd hand NEO motor. Slap on a new head gasket, using major service kit, a few new seals here and there and you'll have a very capable motor to do 300kW ~ 400kW all day.
    • https://www.3si.org/threads/crusty-white-balls-on-spark-plugs.666041/ If you see little bits of aluminum on the plugs that's a detonation sign. They don't need to melt for there to be a problem. Coil harnesses disintegrating is normal. Welcome to owning these cars. A new one will last decades done right. Run a compression test and see if they're all ok. If so just keep running it.
    • I hear you! Been thinking about this a lot actually and I fully agree. Been wanting to get a second car that my partner can drive as well. But if I'm spending money on a car it has to be something that is fun to drive. And I already have a big old boosted boat so want something light and nimble. Pretty high on my list is the Honda S660. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_S660 Modern Honda so hopefully reliable, small, light-weight, high-ish revving 6 speed manual. Rear wheel drive. They are slow but apparently heaps of fun. And Jen loves the look of them. We see them every now and then around here. Main concern is that it's tiny and I might not fit.
    • You can be fully serviced Neo heads for $3000 online, so don’t think i will quite get $5000 for it. I would probably end up just keeping the head for a worst case scenario down the line, best case is i have a new head to upgrade if something happens to the current one in the future, as i imagine these will get harder and harder to find
    • Well, the key thing is still your budget (and time, but you've said you don't have much), and the fact you are happy with the existing 300kw for now. If I were you I'd buy the 5k engine, sell the head (probably for 5k these days as its a 25 NEO), swap your head onto it and send it.  Then, as funds allow, collect parts to rebuild your now spare bottom end properly.
