A newly available 14" and 15" tire

Post by speeder » 24 Jun 2010 09:45

Dunlop Direzza. Looks pretty good. It got pretty good reviews in the recent Grassroots Motorsports mag and comes in some 510 compatible sizes that I was glad to see. I've got the Yoko ES100's that are also still available in some 14" sizes and they are not bad also. Sorry for the long link. Tirerack has them.

Looks like a similar tread block to the Dunlop 195/55/14 SP8000 I have on my car right now. Nice tire, wholly satisfied, they have been on my car for 5 years and are now up for replacement.

I have these on my Subaru for autoX (street tire class) and they are a very good, competitive tire!

Excellent. We run these on our 24h of Lemons CRX and they are great. I'll be happy to get rid of my T1-Rs for these.

I bought some 185/55/r14 Federals about a year ago which I looked for quite some time to find. They took a while to track down even for the dealer, they were in a large warehouse. If I remember right they were around 65 each. Not sure how the federals rank in quality compared to the others but I couldn't be happier. They fit really nice on my 510 on a 6 inch rim with no rubbing. No rolled fenders and my 510 is pretty low. If someone is really interested in where I got these I can try and look it up or find the receipt.
