I really like my Carrera III rims so much I treated myself and car to fresh tyres.

Michelin Pilot Super Sports........very quiet and responsive steering compared to the Contis.

Im now hoping for a long fall to continue this great summer driving season :)

Cha-CHING! Anything wearing the Michelin name is BIG BUCKS! Everyone I have known who ran on them liked them though!

I know I will be getting a set. I had pilot road 2's on my VFR that I just sold, if the car pilots are half of what my bike tires were I will be verry happy. But ya not cheap, the set for my VFR was 750 taxes in.

Not really buddy as those are old pics.
wednesday night did the traditional smoke show on the street when leaving.

I think I am only spinning 1 wheel though, or 1 more then the other.

I wish I could get out more but some of the problem was incorrect parts making tuning impossible for a first timer.
much better now.

BTW how many kilometers do you get from a tank, ruffly?

Hey buddy, how come you are not in the road side assistance thread?
I was looking for your number as I have a loaner phone.

I am going to come up your way this week end just because.
I need to get an alignment as well If I am in the city.

Are you going to be around?

Call me on my cell 715-8119
