Dammit, now i'm in trouble. And no they're not worn, they're at prime tread depth. Many people shave new tires to look like that.

yup, same tires. I hear it takes a bit to get these up to temp, so keep that in mind on your first couple of laps.

Yes, these are the same tires as on the CSL.

They are actually at around 80% life left. Whey they are shaved, you don't see the thread any more. Similar to the RA1s http://www.toyoracing.com/TireInfo/RA1_tires.asp

yeah, but the fronts are too narrow (7.5") and rears are wrong offset to use all around (et8, 9" wide).

You are right, the roadstars look much better.

Finally, some real grip for the beast. It should be like on rails now.
