Try Again (New Tires)

Post by Sharkbait » Sat Jan 27, 2018 5:10 pm

Replacing my old Toyo Proxy 1's.
I have been considering BFG G Force Sport Comp 2 or Conti Extreme Contact Sport.
Only interested in a summer performance tire not an all season.
My wheels are 16' BBS. Michelin no longer makes a 16" Super Sport however BFG is basically the same thing.
Havent replaced rubber in a while so not to sure of the market/products.
Any experienced comments are appreciated.

Thx, Iain

I don't think there is a minimum of posts required before you can post pix, but I can check with Brian, Big Coupe admin =D>

There is a limit to the file size however, can you please try and reduce the file size :-k

In the days when my wallet was visibly much thinner, I purchased a set of Kumho SPTs. I was quite impressed with them until my LSD ate them. They were ridiculously inexpensive ten years ago as compared to the big name brands. Toph

For high end summer, Michelin Pilot sport, or Dunlop Direzza are awesome.

I like the Pilot AS3's for all season.
