Post getting new tires!!

It's about f'ing time. The recent flat tire I got at the rallycross was enough to make me buy 4 new tires. I am so sick of those crappy RE92's. I'm getting some BFG Comp T/A VR4's put on Monday at noon. Anybody had any experience with them?

Ack, sorry to hear that.

I had the VR-4's on my old Talon. I kinda think they're just a shy better than the RE-92's.

That's just my personal experience.

For the $$, you could get some good Dunlop 8000's or Kumho 712's. Or are you looking for the all-season aspect of things?

Yea, I'm looking for all-season. If I got summer tires, I'd have to change them off for the winter here, and that's something I can do without The VR4's seem to be one of the best all-around all-season tires with good wet, dry, and snow traction.

If you want good all-season tires, the bridgestone pole positions are really good although they probably lack in the snow traction . I have Toyo Proxes T1-S's currently and have nothing bad to say about them for the price, great wet traction and dry is way better then the Re-92's which I'll probably put on during the winter for the snow. Sorry about the tire though at least now you have an excuse to buy new tires

Try the BFG KDWS(not the KDW). The are rated for M+S(4 season). Excellent tires, my buddy has them and they have super stiff sidewalls. He works at a tire store and recommended them. I think Tire Rack carries them now. They aren't too badly priced. I think they go for about a $100 for size as stock.

Hey, I got the VR-4's on my RS. I pulled them off our saturn that we sold. They are a world better than the RE92's for auto-x. I'm not sure I'd like using them for rally-x though. The sidewalls are sooo much more stiff than the RE92's, you'll notice that first. I think I'll switch to g-forces next, this guy in an Audi TT keeps beating me at Auto-x and there is no reason he should be going that much quicker, except for the tires.

I have the VR4s on my RS right now, and if auto-x is that important to you, I wouldnt recommend them unless you are running the stock suspension. Any kind of upgraded suspension (talking springs and struts) will quickly make the VR4s the weak link in the chain. They are great durable tire, fine for the street, but ROCK HARD (360 Treadwear). Yes, the sidewalls are very stiff, which means you can run lower pressure, but it still didn't give me anywhere near acceptable bite.

I would opt for wet/dry G Force Kdw if you are determined to stick with BFG, and want to competitively auto-x.
