Tyre Blew Out From The Inside Of The Wheel

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have had my R33 s2 1998 for around 3-4 years now, And I purchased it stock, one of the first things i did was put on new wheels, I bought some RoH Mantis Gun metal grey like these http://www.bgworldwheels.co.nz/images2/mantis2.jpg

18 inches and i have some Toyo Tyres on them i think they are 255/40/R18

and all has been fine, i have been through some tyres before i think i have only actualy bought around 2 sets of tyres in that ammount of time but i do not drive a lot.

So long story short. My rear drivers side tyre looks like it had been rubbing on a shockie but there is no evidence of this accept for the inside of the tyre has blown out. and this has not happend before. and my vehicle is standard height,

I think the tyres that came with it were 255/40/R16 and the Good Year guys said they are fine for the vehicle, has any one had trouble like this?

Whats your alignment like? more than likely the cause of the problem.

If you put up a picture of the tyre it will be easier to tell what caused it to fail

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
