Post Attn: Bud...

Here are some possibilities for tires for you: http://www.bensrallypage.com/misc_fo...ard_tires.html http://www.bensrallypage.com/misc_fo...lly_tires.html http://www.bensrallypage.com/misc_fo...son_tires.html

These are just a few of the ones I found today while surfing. Don't know if you already had looked at them.

Yep, I've received E-mail from two of those three. They've sold them already. But, thanks for looking.

Rally tires are on the way! Thanks Mike.

Hmm... Must buy rims.

See those tires spraying dirt and gravel all over the place. Those are the ones I'm getting. Let's call them "experienced" rally tires.

Now that I did you that favor, you can return it to me. He-He
Give me your auto-x tires.....NOW!!!
Just joking. How much do you think it is going to cost to ship those tires?

Mike

I haven't seen this video but maybe 2 times, but I think that there might be footage of that RX-7 in it. Check it out here: http://www.soulimpact.tv/
Just choose your resolution under the picture on the right.

My system didn't have the right video CODEC so I couldn't see the video. I'll have to download the player and try again later.

I paid $40 to have them shipped and the seller agreed to pay anything over that (or keep anything under that). So, the tires cost me $170 all told. Now I have to buy 15" wheels and get them mounted and balanced.

Make me an offer on the A520s. I might take it. I'm not particularly looking forward to driving to Oregon on them. I think I'll use them for the next autocross, but I might part with them before the last one. One run on good tires might get you into a trophy positin in NV3. However, be warned. I hate the way they handle on the road.

Since everyone is in such a cheritable mood, here's a wheel place I found in the SS forum. http://www.stockwheels.com
I haven't tried them yet, but I won't be able to purchase for a while. Let me know if you check it out.

I'm already in a trophy position.
One good run on a set of good rubber could bump you out of the lead!!!

He-He, just joking.
I think I want to get a different set of wheels before I get some different tires anyway, but maybe I will find a set of older RS wheels. I want to find the gold 5-spoke wheels that came on the 98 model.

Bud,

I have the RX on video. He ran really well. Sprayed me with rocks pretty good.

You don't have QuickTime Bud? What kinda self respecting techno-nerd/geek are you?

Apparently I'm an idiot savant. (Or maybe just an idiot, it's so hard to tell.)


Way-cool video! That certainly looks like him.

I found a local salvage yard that had a small stack of used 15" steel wheels for an Impreza. I'm going to pick some up this weekend. I'll let everyone know how many are left incase anyone's interested.
