re-01

hello dcd,

after using re-01, no more tramlining...much more stable going straight BUT the grip is not COMPARABLE to my previous tires - ADVAN TNR045. now i need to reduce my cornering speed and brake much sooner......sxxt......

oh well.....time to drift .......... :eek:
i hope they'll work better after 500km run in.....

97 GTR VSPEC....Well you shouldn't really compare ADVAN TNR045 with RE-01s. The Yokohamas are semi-slicks!! As your next tyre you should try either the Dunlop D01J or the Bridgestones Potenza RE540S...the latter being the first choice for sports cars here in Japan. You will find the compound is slightly softer that the YH and will warm up faster..not to mention the added grip!
I know what yu mean about the reduced tramlining!! I have chaged from my original RE040s to YH DNA GPs and the difference is amazing!! Not as much grip...but hey who cares!

right tires

hello dino...

i was going to put D01-J on my 18x10 avs model 5 rims but the tires are not wide enough for the rim (also 265/35/18).....dat's why i chose the TNR045 last time

dunno bout the diff. between D01-j & TNr045 but all the fast cars in hk use D01-J....TNR is kinda less popular.....

all r compound tires are not as wide as street tire, correct?
i better try 540s next time.
