Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

Thanks Keith,
Reading the reviews people who have run the R888 and R888r were immediately faster on the AR1.

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

If anyone is interested in reading some reviews of the AR1 I have found this site to be a good source for tire reviews.

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

I'm in the market for a set of tires for another set of wheels. I'm running 185/60r14 Nankang NS-2Rs on my current wheels and they perform amazingly. Do you think with the stiffer sidewalls of the AR-1 I could fit 225/45r15 on a 6.5"? When are you needing to make the purchase by and can shipping be...

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

The 13s are available. If everyone who hasn't already put down what size you would like I will get the individual pricing.

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

Just let me know. The Tires would not be coming in till spring so there would be no risk of them freezing.

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

I have no experience with these tires. I race locally in IT7 (for 1st gen Mazda RX7's in ITA spec). The Nitto NT01 is the spec tire. They have a 100 TW rating. What always seems to be the case with most of these 100 +/- TW tires is they run for a full season w/o any drop in lap times. They are grip...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

I will be interested in the R180 version for sure. I don't think I will be able to make it into town to meet you when you are here. If they work out well on that red car I'm sure they would work on mine.

NANKANG AR-1 group buy

I'm putting it out there if anyone is interested in getting some R compound tires. I am able to get a pretty good deal on them. If I have more people the price will get better. Currently they are $600 for a set of 205/50R15 delivered to my door. There is a wide variety of sizes. https://www.wheelwiz...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

Sorry guys my question was not totally clear. If I am not buying the stubs then there would be no bolts being removed. You only need to remove the 8 nuts per side and remove the axles. At least on my car all the shoulder bolts are press fit in. Dadzsun I don't want you to give any secrets. I was jus...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

I'm curious why you need to include the shoulder bolts?

Re:

If you're running R160, these should match up perfectly fine. The current design will NOT fit with an R180 in a 510, the wider diff makes the net axle length is just too short (working on a solution). That's too bad. The R160s don't hold up to the traction/power/abuse I put to them. I look forward ...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

I can imagine it would have been a bit scary driving into those corners and not expecting it if you were not on R compounds. It made me thankful I have the tires I do. Diving into them fast and knowing you have a bunch left in the bank in terms of grip was comforting. If the road turns quicker than ...
