New Michelin Pilot Super Sports w/ TSW Interlagos on my BRICK
Posted 02 May 2012 - 05:33 PM
Won't get them bolted on the Brick till tomorrow or Fri.
But here is a TEASER pix with the Nitto DR on the same wheel and the current ASA aftermarket wheels with Conti DW's... DW's are almost worn out, but got a $70 rebate on Michelins so went ahead early to get FREE freight Freight = $70. rebate!)
Will post the "AFTER" pix as soon as I get the wheels installed!

Looking back on all the posts I've read of yours Bob, it sure seems you know an awful lot about tires and what not.
I may have to have ADMIN deem you the EB Forums resident tire expert my friend :yo:

Mike, wasn't this the wheel you are looking at, in the "black" config? I like Scrmings wheel design equally well, but didn't want a mesh style look, as I have too many sets like that already!
I was "sort of" the resident guru on Tires and Wheels on the 2 G8 boards, when I was posting there regularly, but certainly don't know everything. Do try to find the correct answer if possible, like offset issues etc. It is always best to error on the side of caution... and check twice and buy once! Bought these wheels last fall when I got the Nitto DR's for 2 of them.
For reference, here is a pix of my ASA (AR2-V2) wheels with the Conti DW's. They weigh 23 lbs vs the 18 lb TSW Both have machine polished faces.
The 255-45-18" Conti DW's and the Michelin 235-50-18" Pilot Super Sports both weigh 26 lbs (per TireRack), and are almost the same height and width. Conti's cost $195. ea + freight. Michelin's cost $248. ea + frt less a $70. rebate. Freight was $64. Paid $157. for mounting, including Road Force bal, & installation of TPMS bands & Sensors that I provided.
