Saw this video longer time ago and also for that reason i riding the front tires till they are good just for the bin, buy new 2 tires, they i am fitting on rear and the slightly wear off from rear just move to the frontHave a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5YsQ_a_ijA&feature=youtube_gdata_player you may have better traction setting off but once moving its a different story
Not that complete and utter crap, narrow viewpoint, one off road condition, limited vehicle type video again surely.......Have a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5YsQ_a_ijA&feature=youtube_gdata_player you may have better traction setting off but once moving its a different story
Where did you get them from?? Do share**** the above.
I have but today been to Morgan Tyres in Belfast.
I got 4 'part warn' conti sport contact 5 tyres, 235 40 18, (6mm on 2, 7mm on 2, mould nipples still visable)
For £210 fitted and balanced. Thats a £700+ saving on the same tyres new.
You got to love the Germans for their strict rules.
You are right and there is no definitive answer where to stick a pair of new tyres as you can argue a valid case either way. It's very situation dependant.Though Conley is often very blunt in the way he expresses his opinion, he knows what he's talking about based on experience. As opposed to many others who are just talking hear-say.
In this case, he is right, though I can't completely agree with him. For an experienced driver, having the tires with the best grip at the front is favorabel at almost all times. Oversteer is much easier to solve than understeer if you know what you're doing, especially on a fwd car with lots of power. But for many people on here, it will become tricky if they have the rear step out too much. Many inexperienced drivers catch the first slide, let go of the throttle, overcorrect and then counter-react too late. Thus ending up in the ditch anyway... For them, understeer is more foolproof and easier to solve.
So for inexperienced drivers (eg, people who don't have racing experience or done many, many trackdays) I would probably recommend having the best tires at the back.
