yeah, but your facts are different from mine LOL
OK, you all know my thoughts and feelings about the only tyre for the GTR, however the NEW Dunlop has some good write up and it's most importantly a run flat, you never know I may be tempted n:chairshotIm shopping for tyres at the moment....
I'm on my second set of Bridgestones and to be honest...... I like them.... but on the flip side I've not tried anything else.
Got my eye on some oem dunlops.... any good?? In relation to the RE070s
Why did Nissan replace the bridgies with the dunlops?No,why would I ? Nissan spent an absolute fortune getting Bridgestone to MAKE a tyre for the super car !
It's a bit like altering the aerodynamics of your car by putting hugh great big ironing board spoilers on the car - Nissan did a hell of a lot of wind tunnel testing to get the aerodynamics correct.
Yes there are other tyres that are better in the wet, and give a more compliant ride, however as stated Oh soooooooooooooo many times, I know which tyre I would rather have if I get a puncture and the side walls are a lot stiffer for the extreme cornering forces etc etc etc
By al means, experiment, you may find you like the MPSS better (Oh I hope not) But I may give the new Dunnies a try as they are most importantly a Run Flat
They were superb, the senior chap (assistant manager) insisted on doing it himself and he made a great job of them - no scrapes at all.How'd you get on with fitting tyres at F1 as I've had a shocker in the past with quick fit!
It wouldn't have been that tough a sellNo,why would I ? Nissan spent an absolute fortune getting Bridgestone to MAKE a tyre for the super car !
Because they were found to be 'difficult' under certain conditions. Dunlop's were the OEM tyre for ALL R35's sold in the UK. No UK car came with the Bridgestone'sWhy did Nissan replace the bridgies with the dunlops?
+1 This man talks sense and EXPERIENCE! Nuff said.....Because they were found to be 'difficult' under certain conditions. Dunlop's were the OEM tyre for ALL R35's sold in the UK. No UK car came with the Bridgestone's
Cold wet conditions were their weakness especially when part worn whilst the Dunlop's were somewhat more compliant. The Bridgestone's were great in the dry and warm but had a tendency to steer you with the camber - into the ditch!
The new Dunlop's being fitted to the MY14's are supposed to be better and are a runflat as well.
For me it is Toyo 888's for track and MPSS for road.
