F@#$ing kumho tires

Went to the track wednesday and the best i was able to run was a 14.22@98MPH I never got a decent launch i was spinning all the way through 1st, best 60 FT was a 2.20. any advice? i want to order some DR's but funds are tight. track prep was also ****. considering this was my 1st time how would you rate my times?

Re: F@#$ing kumho tires

I just put new Kumos on my Cobra, my old Coopers were way better. The sidewalls are weak and seem to roll over when I corner hard. Kumos suck, anyone want to buy them?:whistle:

yeah, those stupid brakes... hate them lol

I never thought of doing 16s... thats a damn good idea. I just automatically figure v6 wheels as being 15's.

Re: F@#$ing kumho tires

15s won't even clear the rear brakes?

There's no need to swap out the fronts.

Re: F@#$ing kumho tires
