I just ordered the extreme contact sports to replace my worn out all season tires on the OEM wheels. This will be the daily driver set and wet tires if needed. I have them on my other car and like them and they seem to be highly regarded as a wet autocross tire.

I won't order the dry tires for another month or so since it is still pretty cold in the midwest. I'm trying to find someone that will put 275's on a 8.5 inch wheel that around me.

I am leaning towards the BFG's at the moment.

I don't think you will go wrong with either BFGs or RE71s. Differences are rather small and dig into preference, driving style, outside temps, and position of the moon.

I personally don't like how hot my RE71s get and I don't believe that is optimal for them. Since, I have never ran Rivals, I can't compare them. But, the word is that BFGs handle higher temps better. Now, since they switch to version 1.5 from 1.0 in 275/35/18 size, it brings another variable into the calculation.

Now, BFG does offer much better contingency support, so for some that would be important as well.

First dry event of the season yesterday. I have not dialed the new rear shocks in yet but even at 9 clicks of rebound the car was much looser than before.

Easily won my class and PAX'd 10/172.


Results here.

Those shocks look great, I looked into the MCS but didn't pull the trigger due to price.

I decided to go with what I know and got a new set of RE71s. Stepped up to 275s. My first event is in Toledo next weekend on concrete. I'm hoping its dry.

I can't figure out how to embed the video but this is the link to my fastest run.

I ended up 11 in PAX, my first time on concrete in over 10 years.

Congrats! Looks like a solid finish in a competitive region.

That is my plan at the moment. I am going to do a few more events at Toledo and the tour in Peru, IN to get more experience on concrete.

Are you doing nationals?

Yessir We will show those pesky Focus RS's .

Also excited about the Finger Lakes tour just two weeks away but I feel I need more time to dial in the shocks :/.
