Anything will hold up well on the back of an R53 as it gets so little braking force :lol:.Thanks. I'm asking as it seems a lot of money. I have some stock sized Tarox discs on the my back of the R53 and they've held up pretty well, years actually, so no I've no bad experience with Tarox.
I'm going to nab the Nitto's, or maybe 4 Kumho's, for the 17x7 Enkei SC15s so we will have - between us - at least one spare set of rims and tyres for the track.• plus some tyres: 3x OK Nitto NT01 215/45-17, 1x quite worn, and a pile of about 5-6x worn Kumho V70a 215/40-17s (maybe we'll have enough for a track day?)
Just re-reading my own thread. EB's managed to destroy 4 of these OE Kumho's (two in Dubai, two in Sweden). I think we need to manage the pressures better. Or get more resilient tyres.The GP2 has been killing tyres recently. The second Kumho V70a blew out on the highway, with another long gash in the sidewall ... so the car is back on stock rims and 215/45-17 Yokohama AD08s. The climate is notoriously harsh on tyres and they are getting to 3 years old, but no one likes a blowout. We're thinking that AD08Rs are the way forward: sticky, resilient, can handle lots of camber... now it's just to find some.
