Default Advan A048. Where to find?

Trying to find out a little more about this tire and if the lettering on the side is permanent or does it come off with steel wool. I'm going with a 18x9.5 set up and this tire looks really agressive.Plus i do some spirited driving and daily driving.Here's a pic of the tire though.

I have the Yokahama AVS's and mine is in black. That appears to be painted. Take a look at the red its a little smudged, looks like paint to me

Yes, the tire is aggressive. Too aggressive for the street. It's an R-Comp meant for track days. If you're not tracking, you don't need them. If you want an aggressive street tire I'd suggest something like a Falken RT-615 or Brisgestone RE01R.

18x9.5 5x100, so wheel bearings and R compounds should last about the same time................
