New sticky tires

Nothing like new, squeaky clean sticky tires!
Just had Dunlop Star Specs installed this morning at PBC Automotive.  Although for some reason I didn't take a photo, it was nice to see a repair shop with a long row of Miatas parked there.  My prior Yokohamas were so badly hard, worn doorstops they migh make it to their shelf of shame (though they'd need a bigger shelf!) I'll be sure to update my thoughs after a few miles and a few ax events. I borrowed a set from a guy to try at a previous Winchester event with CDC and averaged a guestimate 1 second drop in times.  Definately stickier and noiser than the Yokos. Sorry about the lame cell phones photos!  I chose these tires because EVERYONE seems to like and run them and they offer a bit more wet traction than the Bridgestone RE-11s acording to Tire Rack.

  1. Good shit John. Hopefully we'll be able to see an improvement in the gap between your old times and your new times in X4 this weekend.
