i guess i'm stuck with the Kuhmo ECSTA MX, since my stupid rims are too small to fit 245 or even 235 of the RT615's. so ill get the MX since they are cheap and good till i get better rims /

Im guessing those are the lap times? Road coarse or auto X. I might have to slap these on my track rims, not sure if I want to get R compound tires just yet.

You can run 235/40/17 on the M68's. Don't worry, I guarantee it will mount and drive 100% fine.

Auto-x times.

I was checking around, they are by no means cheap tires. 4x265/35/18 still come to about $900USD.

Pej, what do you expect to pay for a size like that? $200 for a set? Comon man, they aren't 205/50R15's.

Well they are suppose to be a good value, Neovas are only like $250-$300 more and that is a very pricey tire.

You bought oversized tires. Look up at how tire sizes work.

Also, take it really easy in the rain. MX's don't like any moisture.

A guy was running MX's at our track event saturday (rainy afternoon sessions). The tires were holding up pretty good.

I think they will be fine for wet street driving. Just don't think you are superman and you'll be fine.

I think you would have been better off going with Hankook then the MX tires. The Hankooks are cheaper and they have better dry grip.

I think he means they might be too big.
