I'm sure you know this tommy but the a048 is a very different tyre to the ad08.. Imagine r888 type for th 48's and federal RS-R's for the ad08's... Both good but r888/a048 much better just for track... I think- could be wrong!

I will be going for a set of Neovas, they are very good tyres. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OC83IbX__Gg

Just got back from a bit of a shake down testing out the R35 brakes and getting a proper feel for the HKS suspension. I did some bedding in of the pads and brakes and all I can say is I was amazed how much bite they had over the R34 Brembo you can really feel all 4 brakes working very well. As for people who said brake bias would be an issue I can say have trail brakes into a couple of corners this was not the case the car remained well balanced.

As for the suspension I could not fault them for road use and handled uneven surface really well and stood up well on the high speed bends having pulled up at a set of services and stiffened them up. For track use I will be going for a set of Nitrons which I am about to order.

Federal rsr's are cheap crap compared to the AD08, and toyo r888 are so soft they don't last and are horrible in the wet. Never used A048's

I had both tyres the A048 is a great tyre,very stiff sidewall and exceptional dry grip,now superseded by the A050.

The Advan Neova AD08 is a good compromise but for dry road or track days I would get the A050.

Federals RSR (the trackday tyre) are cheap, but wouldn't say crap.

I have them on my 32 and it acquitted itself well on a wet day at brand 57-58 second laps not revving the nuts off it.

Sure the top Yoko and 888s would give a better laptime, but the RS-Rs are lasting well for a big heavy Skyline.

Would def by again.
