wow weird tread pattern

330ci05 07-19-2006 06:37 PM

yeah i like the way they LOOK *love* *love* just dunno if they are any good

I have them on my E46. My brother just bought a set for his car.

I highly recommend them.

I think they are among the best non-R-compounds tires you can get for the money.

Quiet. Super sticky. Cheap.

The only problem is that they will wear out quickly because of the soft sticky rubber.

Go for it. *th-up*

the toyo's r comp are just a lil bit more then these, i was thinking of getting those, but can i drive them daily, in the summer that is, my car is stored in the winter anyways...

Incredible tires.

I'm just waiting on Falken to finally introduce the 225/50/15 fitment to throw out my current (new) tires. FWIW I ran them in 205/50/15 on another set of wheels and was blown away by their performance.

Quack 07-20-2006 12:05 AM

Jay are these the tires that you had that look like they were bald?

Mystikal 07-20-2006 12:28 AM

Those were the old version of them, the RT-215. And yeah, it was funny having strangers tell me I need new tires when they were a week old.

330ci05 07-20-2006 07:21 AM

yeah they look like they are bold... i wish they had 235/45/17 but they don't :( so i have to order 245 for the front and 255 for the rear... i swap my stock 245's fromt the back to the front and my 225's from the front to the back to see if the 245's would rub and they don't :D:D:D but i get no traction with the facken 225's :( lol my beast has tooo much power lol :D :D

Jay, how do you compare those with Hankook RS2's ? I hear that the RT-615's wear quite fast

What Toyo's are you talking about exactly? The T1R's?

I don't think driving on R-compound tires on the street is a good idea. They will wear very quickly. You CAN, but what's the point? You won't use all the potential of the tire unless you are an irresponsible driver.

Even on the track, R-comp are not recommended for novice drivers.

The RT615 (or a set of Hankook ventus Z212) are the best choice for street tires in my opinion. Plus it is hard to beat that price.

they are out of the RT615 , i'll try the Hankook ventus Z212 since i really need tires :D

where did u get ur RT615 from?

330ci05 07-20-2006 12:27 PM

the PROXES RA-1 are r compound right?

what about the T1R ???

rafiki 07-20-2006 12:52 PM

RA-1 is the R compound tire. T1R is the replacement for the T1S - street tire.
