Tyres you use(d) and how u would rate them


Recommended Posts

How long do they wear (the 07rs?) given their treadwear they are walking into a R comp land fairly frequently. They are 140TW (not 180 to correct myself).

How about prices on the RE71RS? Any other newcomers that you're aware of? I see reviews of Falkens etc overseas, but there seems to be no availability at all in Australia land.

I ask because every car community looks to have their own little groups of tyre brands they recommend and it doesnt seem to bleed across much, the Skyline people use Skyline recommended tyres, MX5 people use their own 'known' brands, see also: Euro car people... What other VW nuggets of wisdom can you provide?

On the road? No idea as they die on the track first. I get 3-4 events out of the fronts if I can't rotate them. Depending upon how many laps I do. Guys with lighter cars get more. GTI is no lightweight at 1400kg stripped with me in it and a full tank. On my car they like 29-30psi, any more and they get destroyed. They will maintain that pressure for the whole day once dialled in. Honestly if you want a dual duty tyre I think they are the best you can get for the pace you get from them. Some people seem to have some really bad experiences with them though. I think they have some quality inconsistencies. I've never had an issue.

I think the RE71RS cost me about $350 each for 18s. Can't remember exactly.

Yes yanks seem to love the RT660 which we don't get. Most prefer it to the A052 because it's a lot cheaper and lasts longer but better than everything else.
