    Any "overreaction" is because I am totally sick and tired of his internet warrior BS already.
    I don't follow him around this site, just looking for/waiting for a chance to pounce on anything he posts, I usually pretty much avoid him at all costs.
    In fact, I used to actually give kudos and likes to his posts, once upon a time.

    He goes on to the ignore list now, problem solved.

    Sorry, no other pics, and nothing to get a pic to the computer with, but I cannot be the ONLY one with these tires on a 17x8 on this whole site.

    I can tell you that the flat lip edge (the part that says "Team Dynamics Motorsports" cast into it) of the 17x8 1.2s does stick out a slight bit from the bead of the RS-RRs though, since there is some alloy to alloy contact when they are stacked on top of each other.
    They are NOT the widest tread width 215/40-17 tires out there, if that is what you are looking for (The Yoko AD08Rs, and older model Dunlop Star Spec 2s win that contest).

    Interesting. I was told Federals run wider then what they're advertised which is why I'm asking. My 205 Michelin P/S AS3s don't let the lip protrude from the bead. Have you been hard on the RSRRs at all? If so, hows the heat management?

    Not hard enough to tell whether or not they get 'greasy', as some have claimed they do near the end of their 20 minute open track sessions.

    I bought them because they were an inexpensive, but still very sticky tire (did not want the s.Drive, Nero GT, or the Kumho PS31 options) which I could never over-drive/reach their limits on the street (at least not without losing one's license), and wider tread width, and a little more sidewall than most of the 205/40-17s out there.
    The 215/40-17 RS-RRs are actually a tenth of an inch narrower than the 205/40-17 Pilot Sport AS/3s in tread width, but a tenth of an inch wider in section width.

    Federals tend to run wider, but not always. It depends on the model and even sometimes the size. There is a sizing chart on their website.

    I'm pretty close to getting these Firehawks, and just thought I'd see if anyone else had any experience with them. I have been told that they should have the same quick steering response as the OEM Potenzas, which is important to me. This car is my daily driver, and I drive aggressively on the street at times, but have not tracked the car. I also understand they can be a bit vague at the limit, which should not be a problem, because I usually don't reach that point.
    They are quite a bit cheaper than the Bridgestones, and I'm hoping that they might last significantly longer. I only got about nine thousand miles out of the OEM Potenzas.

    No effing smart phone, and I am NOT going to go buy one just to satisfy you, or anyone else on here, or 'prove' anything to anyone on here, since I do not need one in order to survive, as so many others do.

    People on here (JDG and others, at a local FiST meetup) DID see my car with these wheels and tires on it, and can attest to the FACT that they exist.

    Here's a pic from that meet, posted up in the Mid-Atlantic forum right on this here site to shut you the eff up.

    Right in the middle, with the telltale lower IC grille.

    I just had a set installed on wednesday, but its been raining and gross out since. I will say that even with brand new tires in the rain they were tracking better than my fairly worn potenzas. My stock tires lasted 11k or so until the inside edge was getting a little low. They probably had 5k or so left after another rotation but they were getting squirrely in the years first rain. I wound up getting booted from jury duty wednesday so I went across the street and had the firehawks installed :P


    I did find out that my wheels didn't get destroyed by my assistant going through a car wash, it was the place that I had do my tire rotation. They laid the wheels flat on the ground and pushed them across the ground. When the guys had my wheels off I looked and all the scraping was in the same direction. Assistant was not lying :highfive:

    I drive mine in flip flops nearly every weekend, especially during the summer. But it probably depends on what flips you are wearing. IMO they need to be at least capable of strolling comfortably in outside.

    Ya it depends on the type. I daily mine in flip flops almost year round. Some like to fold and get stuck under the pedal. No bueno!

    Same here. Never had a problem in the fist. 04 suburban grabbed it once and folded it but only once.
