I figured that was your way of telling everyone that you've been busy laying pipe!

Good info on the Nittos. I'm not crazy about the Sumitomos, but they were all I could find in the sizes I was looking for when I was in the market. I'll definitely go with the Nittos next time.

The R888's are R compound tires; I don't think it's recommended to heat cycle them repeatedly on the street, is it?

I have these, its a great tire but be aware its not a street tire. You cannot get road hazard on them and they are very sticky and will pick up anything in the street. I got a puncture the next time I drive the car after getting them mounted and had to buy a brand new tire. I'll probably go with the Nitto next time.

Last fall I tossed the 2003 date code Yoko A032R's that were mounted on replica Turbo 3.6 wheels. Also tossed the 2006 date code Hoosier R6's that were on my Fikse FM5's. Since I don't track the car anymore the Fikse's are on full time and I plan to sell the 3.6 wheels.

Was torn between Toyo R888's and Nito NT01's... Went with NT01's when I saw last fall's Discount Tire Direct sale on eBay. Picked up a set of 275/40R17's for the fronts for $302 and 315/35R17 rears for $370 with date codes from Q3 2016.

FM5's are 9.5" front and 11" rear
3.6's are 8.5" front and 11" with rear offset that retains factory spacer

@ Full Quack, I just put a set of BFG Comp 2's All Seasons on my wife's Audi S4... Another eBay discount tire direct deal.

FM5's


Turbo 3.6

Hey there Lyall,

I did not go with the "All Season" comp 2's compound, my choice was the summer only compound.

The comp 2's I have are no longer available from the BFG web site, nor is the thread pattern style...RATS!!!

Hey there Kevin,

As you wrote,
"just doesn't seem to be a hole lot of options for 17" wheels"

This is the main reason I went with 18" rears, as well as for the period 935 staggered diameter wheel look.

Camden, your car looks great and 315 rears are the only way to fly a 930.

Mark, I figured you ran the summer Comp 2's as 930's are scary fun in the wet. Love your staggered setup as well.

Thanks Kevin, tires were tossed because old tires can be deadly, rip Paul Walker... Your car looks great, keep an eye out for discount tire direct deals. The one I found was $100 off for each pair... I bought my FM5's back in 2001 and Jim Fikse came over to my race shop (Fordahl Motorsports) to measure the offsets himself. The 275/315 combo is awesome on the track and shines under heavy braking. A local 911 racer with 3.8 RSR bodywork runs 285/335 on 18's, insane grip.

Nitto NT01's are supposed to be the same compound as Toyo RA'1s and similar to R888's which have a more rain friendly tread pattern. I've raced on full tread RA1's for years as intermediates. (Toyo Tire Holdings of Americas Inc., the parent company of both Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. and Nitto Tire U.S.A.)

PM me Patina, my Turbo 3.6 wheels are from B&H motorsports back in the 1996 iirc. His center casting but cast and assembled by Kinesis with their rim halves. I was running 255/40R17 up front on these. Haven't given much thought to pricing though.

FlatSixPilot - I am in awe!

Two thumbs up from me for NT01's on the street. Lots of great reviews for track work too and most run em til they cord.

If you like stick but don't want R compound rubber, SCCA's A/X street classes require minimum 200 treadwear tires. Several tire makers with 140 treadwear models increased to 200 on some sizes so they were legal for this class. Nitto did this for some sizes of the NT05.
