Thank you for the post kar1zma.

We suggested the V12 EVO 2 in a previous thread for you but I just noticed this model is not available in an applicable 20" staggered set-up for your application. Another excellent model to look into is the Cooper RS3-S. This model is available in size 245/45R-20 and 275/40R-20. TheRS3-S typically lasts 25K + miles and will provide you with more dry grip over your current tires. A nice feature about the RSS-3 is the asymmetrical tread pattern. This type of tread pattern is great for staggered applications as it allows for side to side rotation on the same axle. Here are the links with more details.

thanks for that

i was doing some further research
and i have read some great reviews about the michelin pilot super sports

how do these compare with the Cooper AS3

plus for the back i want to go with 285
since im going to get 20x10.5" rims for the rear
but i was playing around the tire calculator on your site
and 285 give speedo errors while the 275 is almost negligible

would a 275 mount on a 10.5"

what would be the correct aspect ratio/rear tire size for me
i couldnt find 285 size in cooper as3 on your site

At almost 13,000 miles my original front Goodyear Supercar tires are getting close toe the wear bar. The rear ones got replaced at a little over 6,000 miles. Lots of nice burnouts, however.

I replaced the rear tires with Michelin AS/3's. These are wonderful tires. Also a warranty from Michelin and Costco for 40,000 miles. :banana:

When I asked several tire dealers in my area about putting bigger Michelins in the rear I was told that it would get me more traction for 0-60 times, however, it would decrease the marvelous handling characteristics of my vehicle. :confused:

Also if you stagger and cannot rotate them it cuts the warranty in half to 20,000 miles. :beer_yum:

I could see it impacting the overall handling. Maybe there some road racing guys more qualified than me who could explain if it does.

Oh, and I hate the Goodyear supercar tires. They are super sticky for a few thousand miles, but it goes away and you're stuck with average performance tires you'll need to replace way too soon.
