I am not intending to do any type of track driving. So for pure street use, do you know what kind of tread life these tires have? I picked up my 04 RX8 (now has 28000 miles) used about a year ago, and the stock tires are shot already. I've barely driven it hard at all because they've been worrying me so much.
I don't have the money to buy tires that will only last me 25 k miles or so before I have to drive like a grandma. Are the Toyos a good choice? I would be happy to give you my business if you feel they are a reliable, longer lasting tire compared to stock.
P.S. Eventually when I get the money I would like to lower my car similar to what you've done with yours. Could you explain to me about camber and what that does to the car? And also, what do you mean when you say you performed a rear fender roll? Thanks!
That T1R is a street tire but indeed it is only going to last about 25k miles. Most ultra high performance tires are about the same.
